HARRISBURG, NC : U.S. Legend Cars International and INEX have been carefully monitoring the impact COVID-19 has had on our 2020 racing season, as well as our racing community.
While we understand some states are beginning to re-open, allowing races to resume, there is still uncertainty as to when the country as a whole will be back in full operation.
Due to the level of uncertainty, U.S. Legend Cars and INEX have made modifications to the number of races required to qualify for our International Points Championships.
For the 2020 season, we will be reducing the number of races required for the Asphalt Oval, Dirt Oval, and Bandolero East & West Championships from 20 total races to 15 total races and reducing the number of races for our Road Course Championship from 12 total races to 10.
We will also be doing away with the national qualifier races for the 2020 season. Our national qualifier races are something put in place to encourage drivers to travel outside of their home track to compete. With the current economic state of the world, we feel that it’s in the best interest of our competitors to reduce the amount of required travel for the racing season.
INTERNATIONAL POINTS CHAMPIONSHIP/STATE CHAMPIONSHIP REQUIRED RACES:
- Asphalt Oval, Dirt Oval, and Bandolero East & West – 15 TOTAL (14 Regular, 1 National Championship Event)
- Road Course – 10 TOTAL (9 Regular, 1 National Championship Event)
- State Championship – 8 TOTAL
We feel these changes to the 2020 racing season will keep it as competitive and budget-friendly as possible.
We hope you’re all staying safe and healthy, and we look forward to being back on track soon.
On behalf of everyone and U.S. Legend Cars and INEX, thank you for your participation in our program!
