[August 03, 2020]
many things in our lives, the 2020 racing season is currently on
hold at Lincoln Speedway, in Lincoln, IL. The season opener was set
for this Friday night, April 10 but drivers, teams, and fans will
have to wait a little longer, as officials wait out the COVID-19
restrictions that have swept the nation.
Speedway officials have been following the news
and press conferences regarding the current health issues with
Coronavirus since early to mid-March when changes started taking
place by the minute. To date, Lincoln Speedway has canceled the
Hickory Point Mall Car Show, two weekends of test and tune, and now
the Season Opener.
The Illinois Stay-At-Home order currently runs through the month of
April, meaning the likelihood of having any event before May is
slim. At this time, there is no date set in stone on when the season
will begin but Lincoln Speedway officials are putting everything in
place to be ready to open as soon as the time is right and clearance
The 2020 racing season is set to be a good one for Lincoln Speedway
with a number of great events including the POWRi Midget Speedweek
on Thursday, June 11, the Summer Nationals Hell Tour on Sunday, July
5, and for the first time, the DIRTcar Fall Nationals October 1-3.
