July 18 NASCAR Xfinity Series race realigned to Kentucky Speedway; NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race canceled
LOUDON, N.H. – As part of NASCAR’s revised 2020 schedule, the July 19 NASCAR Cup Series Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway has been postponed to August 2 and will be broadcast on NBCSN at 3 p.m. ET. Due to ongoing considerations with the pandemic, it’s unclear at this time if fans will be allowed access to the rescheduled date.
Waterbury, VT and Naples, ME – American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro All Star Series (PASS) officials have announced the 2020 Northeast Classic at Loudon’s New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) has been cancelled. The inaugural edition of the event will now take place on April 16 and 17, 2021.
Despite the hopes of series officials, and a previous postponement to May 8 and 9, it became clear in recent days that holding the Northeast Classic in 2020 was no longer practical. The state of New Hampshire recently extended its State of Emergency declaration, and indications are that New Hampshire’s Stay at Home order will also be extended beyond the current May 4 expiration date.
Furthermore, the U.S.-Canada border remains closed to non-essential business, which would prevent the large amount of Quebec-based teams and fans who planned to attend the Northeast Classic from doing so. With the current health and safety concerns, and other postponements and uncertainty throughout the Northeast racing world making rescheduling even more difficult, the decision was made to wait until 2021 for the debut of the highly-anticipated event.

The rescheduling comes in the wake of an ongoing stay-at-home order issued by the state of New Hampshire as a response to the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak. The order is in effect until May 4, which spans through the original mid-April Northeast Classic date.
