On Monday, the Tri Track Open Modified Series event scheduled for May 24 at Claremont Motorsports Park became the series' season opener following the postponement of a May 9 event at Monadnock Speedway. Now, the Claremont event has also been postponed.
"Tri Track Open Modified Series officials announced on Saturday, in collaboration with Claremont Speedway, that the event originally scheduled for May 24 will not happen as scheduled," said the series in a press release.
"New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu released new guidance for the state on Friday that will not allow gatherings to occur for the race event. The Tri Track Open Modified Series continues to keep the safety of our race teams, drivers, staff and fans in mind with decisions. We will provide additional guidance around the 2020 schedule once it is available. Our intention is to hit the track for action this season."
With the latest postponement, the next race on the Tri Track series schedule is at Seekonk Speedway. The event is slated for July 1, as part of Seekonk's "Open Wheel Wednesday" program, which will also feature 350 Small Block Modifieds and the Dave Steele Memorial for NEMA Lights.
