KENTUCKIANA MOTORSPORTS PRESENTED BY LUCAS OIL
NASCAR is racing without fans and viewers are tuning in! Darlington had huge ratings! The two races at Charlotte were equally as exciting! The next races with NASCAR are scheduled to take place include Bristol, Martinsville, Homestead, Atlanta, and Talladega! Most are tracks within a close distance to the race shops of the NASCAR teams in the Charlotte-Mooresville area in North Carolina, or in states that have allowed businesses to re-open a faster compared to other states. The new schedules through mid-June include Xfinity, Truck, and ARCA events.
Locally, the Sportsdrome Speedway has been able to resume limited practice sessions without fans. And it has scheduled racing events -- also without fans. The Indiana governor's office informed Kentuckiana Motorsports that June 14th is the expected day stock cars can resume racing with limited fans in the Hoosier state as long as tracks following CDC guidelines. That is subject to change. Salem Speedway in Salem, Indiana has scheduled practice-- also without fans. The season opener is set for the July 4th holiday with the Firecracker 150. Other tracks include the Ohio Valley Dragway just outside of Louisville, Twin Cities Raceway in North Vernon, Indiana, Thunder Valley in Salem, Beech Bend in Bowling Green, and the Ponderosa Speedway in Junction City, Kentucky. Fans are encouraged to monitor track websites and social media for updates.
We've been told the Kentucky Speedway is preparing a plan of action for the Tripleheader at the Kentucky Speedway in July-- with and without fans. The track is about an hour north of Louisville off Interstate 71. NASCAR will have the final say. Speedway officials are working closely with the governor of Kentucky. Louisville NASCAR Gander Truck Series driver Ben Rhodes is excited to return to the track. "I won in 2018 at my home track. Had a rough time last year. I look forward to getting back to Victory Lane" Rhodes told Kentuckaina Motorsports. The truck series driver will be featured in June on the Kentuckiana Motorsports TV Show which can be seen in the Louisville, Kentucky TV market.
As for the Indianapolis 500, COVID19 forced it out of the normal Memorial Day Holiday slot. It is now set for Sunday August 23.
