North East, Pa. – Lake Erie Speedway and Race of Champions management are prepared to offer fans a “flex” schedule in case it is needed to give fans and participants an opportunity to see the entire show on Saturday, September 26 and Sunday, September 27 as part of Presque Isle Downs & Casino Race of Champions Weekend at Lake Erie Speedway.
Utilizing a “flex” schedule means management may adjust the schedule in the event of any situation that may occur to ensure that the racing program will take place. This could mean the race starts earlier, later or qualifying programs are adjusted to accommodate an earlier start time for feature racing activity. Several other facilities and series commonly use “flex” scheduling to accommodate their customers.
The “flex” schedule option will be used, only if necessary and any adjustments to the schedule will be posted one-hour prior to events changing on all forms of track and series social media, along with Public Address announcements at the track. “Flex” scheduling may adjust the start time and order of events, in order to give everyone an opportunity to accommodate everyone.
At this point, everything remains on schedule as planned and announced, however, management of the Track and the Series wanted to let fans know there is an alternative plan, should adjustments become necessary to complete either day of racing.
Tickets may be purchased for the weekend and will be available at the Lake Erie Speedway ticket office or at www.lakeeriespeedway.com. In the event that there is inclement weather, the event will be postponed to 2021, due to the prior commitment to Mahoning Valley Speedway and their Race of Champions Modified Series event on Saturday, October 3, with an agreed upon and announced inclement weather date of Saturday, October 10.
