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
PROMOTER SAD TO SEE
PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY OVAL NATIONALS CANCELED
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.
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.”

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.
