Yep, you read that right, we are racing July 4th at Daytona!
So raise your hand if you remember when there was a Firecracker 400. We are racing on the 4th of July at Daytona International Speedway, you’re welcome.
As I said in my earlier email, we actually began working on a new date the moment we had to postpone. and we want to thank DIS for working so quickly to help us secure the new date. We just had to wait a bit to ensure we could do it before we announced it.
Ok, the caveat here. The Coronavirus is still a thing. I’m sure you all know that we certainly do. Your health and safety are as important to us (to me) as any of our friends and family because you guys are our friends and family. So, could circumstances change again? Yes, they certainly could. But we are eternal optimists and planning to race!
What does this mean in the right now? If you were registered, you are still registered. If you are on the waitlist, you are still on the same waitlist. I still have your pit and garage requests, and I will continue to work those assignments.
If you cannot make the new date send an email to both Katherine and me, we will credit you or reassign you as per usual.
We will update the Supplemental Rules with the new dates, but you can expect the times for each day to remain the same.
So we certainly hope this is good news for you and we look forward to seeing you in Daytona!
