One day before the Kalamazoo Speedway season was scheduled to begin with the Intimidator 100, track officials received a court order to not host racing this weekend. Due to that, Friday's Intimidator 100, as well as Sunday’s planned Enduro, will not be contested as scheduled.
“About 24 hours before we were to welcome fans and drivers to the Season Opener on Friday, July 3, Kalamazoo Speedway was advised that it fell under Executive Order 133. While this order was promoted as enabling the resumption of professional sports, the Executive Order represents a step backwards for Kalamazoo Speedway,” read a statement from Kalamazoo Speedway. “Previous Executive Orders permitted us to have spectators in the stands and the skyboxes. Executive Order 133 prohibits all live audiences.”

The Michigan 3/8-mile oval was scheduled to begin their season Friday night, more than two months after the original start date. The race was to be streamed live on Speed51, free for premium subscribers.
