NWMT Season Opening Event at Myrtle Beach Postponed

The season-opening Wade Cole Memorial 133 for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour has been postponed due to a forecast of inclement weather.

“With inclement weather predicted for the weekend, NASCAR and Myrtle Beach Speedway have made the decision to postpone Saturday’s Wade Cole Memorial 133 presented by Dunleavy’s Truck & Trailer Repair for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour,” reads a NASCAR statement.  “A makeup date has not been determined.”

NASCAR announced the Myrtle Beach event last Friday to start the 2020 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season, albeit without fans in attendance at the historic South Carolina facility.  Initially, Myrtle Beach Speedway was not included in the 2020 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour schedule after hosting the season opener between 2017 and 2019.

Currently, the next event on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour schedule is Saturday, July 11 at Wall Stadium Speedway (NJ).  Numerous series events have been postponed during the COVID-19 pandemic, with races at Martinsville Speedway (VA) and Iowa Speedway cancelled entirely for the 2020 season.
