The Tri-Track Open Modified Series season opener has once again been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The series was originally slated to start its season on Saturday, May 2 at Monadnock Speedway (NH). The event was initially rescheduled for May 9 and has now been postponed, with a reschedule date yet to be announced.
“The Tri Track Open Modified Series event at Monadnock Speedway, scheduled for May 9, has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic," said the series in a release. "The health and safety of our race teams, drivers, staff and fans continues to be paramount during this unprecedented situation.
"The series will continue to abide by guidelines given by local government and public health officials. At this time, Tri Track officials are working together with Monadnock Speedway to come up with a reschedule date that will fit both parties.”
With the Monadnock postponement, the next event currently scheduled for the series is at Claremont Motorsports Park (NH). Currently, the state of New Hampshire is under a stay-at-home order through May 4. On Friday, Governor Chris Sununu extended New Hampshire's "state of emergency" declaration through May 15, and could extend the stay-at-home order further.
