The Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour announced a revised 2020 season schedule on Thursday, with both of their events lost during March and April to the COVID-19 pandemic back on the schedule.
“The revised schedule reflects appropriate date adjustments based on the current conditions and information gathered by CARS Tour officials,” reads the press release. “All dates and events are subject to change depending on further developments.”
“We revised this schedule based on the information we have now and with the goal of getting the complete season in. I think it is important to get a plan in place and be prepared to move forward with our season when we can,” said CARS Tour Series owner Jack McNelly. “We owe it to our teams, our sponsors, and all of the loyal fans to get this season back on track and completed just as we originally planned on that first green flag at Southern National. As usual we like to be proactive, and by doing so, we hope this results in giving teams and fans the time to plan for our upcoming events.”
The updated schedule includes the previously-announced postponements of the North/South Super Late Model Challenge at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway as well as the U.S. Short Track Nationals at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Along with those events, the CARS Tour event originally scheduled for March at Hickory Motor Speedway is now scheduled for June 13. The 2nd Annual Old North State Nationals at Orange County Speedway, originally scheduled for April 4-5, will now close out the Late Model Stock Tour season on October 17-18.
Other scheduling changes involve the Late Model Stock Car event at Ace Speedway, now scheduled for June 5, as well as the race at Langley Speedway, which will now take place on August 29.
