North Carolina Dirt Track Alters Schedule for Executive Order

Tri-County Race Track (NC) announced adjustments to its schedule following North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper's executive order banning gatherings of more than 100 people due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

 

"Tri-County Race Track will have two practices this week - Monday, March 16th and Thursday, March 19th from 6pm to 9pm," according to a statement on the track's website. "There will be only 25 cars permitted each night with a maximum of 3 people per car. Price of admission is $15 each.

 

"The pit stalls will be marked off 25 feet apart for the race haulers to park and there will be only 2 cars on the track at a time. The main grand stands will remain closed to the public and the concession stand in the pit area will remain closed as well. These 2 practices are scheduled for the race teams to practice and get everything prepared for the upcoming season that will begin as soon things get back to normal."

 

The season opener for Tri-County Race Track is currently scheduled for Friday, April 3.
