Econn Motorsports and Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park have announced the cancellation of the August 5 practice and August 19 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour 150. The recent outbreaks of COVID-19 cases associated with professional sporting events was chief among the reasons for the decision.
“We had initially thought that the virus would be of minimal concern by now, but the numbers are still very concerning”, said Terry Eames of Econn Motorsports. “We remain committed to keeping oval track racing alive at Thompson and will continue to work with the Hoenig family about the possibility of events later in the year”, Eames added.
The World Series is currently still on the Econn Motorsports schedule for October 9-11.
