Five Flags Speedway has postponed its season opening event, originally scheduled for Friday, March 27, amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The Modifieds of Mayhem were scheduled to appear at the event, along with local racing from the WCIParts.com Pro Trucks, The Dock of Pensacola Sportsmen and the Lloyd’s Glass Pure Stocks.
Last Saturday, the ARCA Menards Series East was scheduled to host an event at the Pensacola half-mile. However, that event was also postponed amid COVID-19 concerns. Five Flags Speedway promoter Tim Bryant discussed that postponement last week on Speed51’s “The Bullring.” Fans can also listen to that interview by clicking here.
There is no word at this time regarding potential reschedule dates for either event. The next event tentatively slated for Five Flags Speedway is the Allen Turner Pro Late Models season opener on April 10.
The Deep South Crane Blizzard Series for Super Late Models is currently scheduled to start its season on April 24.
Stay tuned to Speed51 for continued updates regarding the coronavirus and its impact on short track racing.
