LAS VEGAS, NV : All NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway is canceled for the remainder of the 2020 season as a result of the lingering uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
The U.S. Legend Cars Nationals on Oct. 16 and 17 as well as the West Coast Short Track Championships on Nov. 21 remain on the schedule.
“This was a very difficult decision to make,” said LVMS President Chris Powell. “But even as our state looks to reopen some select businesses in the coming days, it seems highly unlikely that we will be able to have crowds of 50 or more until the end of summer at the earliest. And for us, running these events without fans is not an option. Later this year, we will evaluate racing at the Bullring for the 2021 season.
“I want to express our appreciation as well as our regret to the drivers and teams who compete at the Bullring. We’re well aware that they make a tremendous investment in time and resources in order to help us stage exciting short-track racing. Also, we feel for the thousands of loyal fans who enjoy attending races at the Bullring. We will continue to monitor the pandemic-related issues as we look toward next year.”
Fans who have purchased tickets or stockyard spaces for any 2020 event can get a full refund by contacting the LVMS ticket office at 702-644-4444 or by email at email@example.com. Racers who have purchased pit spaces for the 2020 season should contact David Stetzer at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a refund.
