Lincoln Speedway joined a growing list of Pennsylvania tracks to scratch their racing programs for this weekend on Tuesday, cancelling their Saturday program.
“Lincoln Speedway will not be racing this Saturday, March 21,” reads the track’s brief statement. “Keep up to date on all speedway news and information by visiting the track’s official website www.lincolnspeedway.com and by following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.”
On Monday, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf said he would not force the cancellation of events such as short track racing as part of increased shutdowns for the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. However, Lincoln Speedway joins a list of several venues in the Keystone State to announce they would not race this weekend.
Port Royal Speedway’s “Speed Showcase” on March 22 has been postponed. That event was slated to feature the Short Track Super Series and the United Late Model Series.
Meanwhile, Modifieds were expected to return to Selinsgrove Speedway for the first time since 2013 on Saturday, March 21. That event has also been postponed.
Lincoln Speedway did not specify in its statement whether this weekend’s racing activity would be made up at a later date, or if it has been cancelled outright.
