The Tri Track Modified Series event scheduled for Sunday May 24th is also on hold for the foreseeable future. Several conversations have taken place between series owner Wayne Darling and Parks and once a solid time line is established every attempt will be made to reschedule.
“We are in a situation where we have more questions than answers. We want to get the gates open just as soon as we can whether that is for practice or competition” said Parks. “If we can come up with a way to work with the state and get open for practice we will do that”.
At this time the posted schedule has been put on hold with the intention of picking it up on the date permitted. If for any reason something changes track officials will adjust accordingly.
