Carteret County Speedway season suspended for track repairs amid COVID-19 pandemic

PELETIER, NC – The 2020 season at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway has been put on pause due to track repairs and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Track repairs will begin in the coming weeks after issues with the track surface plagued the Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour race earlier this month.  The speedway will make extensive repairs in the corners with the goal of preventing further issues in future races.

The track repairs also come amidst the backdrop of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which has also placed the season is on hold once again at the order of North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper and Health and Human Services Secretary Mandy Cohen.  The state has restrictions in place preventing mass gatherings of more than 50 people.

“We are in a holding pattern as we work to make repairs to the track and work with the state to figure out a plan to move forward with our 2020 season and our 2021 season,” track owner Bob Lowery said.  “While other tracks are operating without fans in attendance, we are unwilling and unable to race without our great fans in attendance.  Our first priority is to get the track surface repaired while we watch what happens in Raleigh and whether they will lift restrictions on businesses and entertainment complexes in the state.”

Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway will formulate a plan in the coming days and weeks for season ticket and trackside holders as well as sponsors with nearly half the season being in the books.

Carteret County Speedway management will keep an eye on developments out of Raleigh with the hopes that state officials will ease restrictions in the coming weeks.  Earlier this year, the track made the decision not to race for championship points if the speedway would not be able to get a full season of racing in.

 

PROMOTER SAD TO SEE PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY OVAL NATIONALS CANCELED

 

(Perris, CA, September 21, 2020)  Last week, it was announced that the Glenn Howard Classic was canceled until 2021 at Perris Auto Speedway.  Less than 24-hours later, the sprint car racing community received another gut punch when promoter Don Kazarian was forced to cancel the 25th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals Presented by All Coast Construction.

 

The silver anniversary of the nation’s most prestigious traditional sprint car race fell victim to the ongoing COVID crisis due to state and county mandates regarding large crowd gatherings.  On the bright side, plans are already underway for next season including the Oval Nationals.  Still, the pain and frustration run deep in the industry. 

 

“Having to cancel the Oval Nationals just culminates the disappointment we have been dealing with all season long,” Kazarian said.  “One could never dream a nightmare like this could ever happen.  It affects everyone.  We feel awful for the fans, drivers, sponsors, and officials.  It is tough for  our staff as well.  As it was slated to be our 25th season, we had high hopes for it to be a great year.  However, time and time again, we have had to make the sad announcement that more races have been canceled.  Despite that, we are going to continue to push forward.  Looking ahead, we are already making plans for 2021.  We have some exciting announcements coming soon and 2021 is going to be a great year.  Stay tuned throughout the winter for the details.”

 

“We urge everyone to do all they can to stay safe and healthy,” Kazarian continued.  “We will get over this and when we do, it will be great to see everyone back and having fun at the track on Saturday nights.”

 

While there is no racing due to the mandates on crowds, The PAS remains open for private and group practice sessions as well as for television, movie, and commercial shoots.  Anyone who is interested in renting the track for one of those sessions can send an e-mail to kazariandon@gmail.com.
