At 9:30am this morning, NCM management called Mike Morrison to let him know their track had been closed until April 13th.
The track had been committed to hosting all upcoming events, but in a meeting yesterday between the Mayor of Bowling Green and the Governor of Kentucky it was made known that NCM was still open and hosting events. The Governor said no, and instructed all motorsport facilities to shut down for the next few weeks.
Without a track to race on, we can’t hold our event.
We are frustrated that our event has been canceled and we know you are too. We all needed this break from everyday life to get some fun racing in our lives.
Your next question is probably about the money you had paid in for this event. ChampCar will issue a full refund or move your paid fees to another event. Just email Mike Morrison or Mike Chisek and let us know what you would like us to do with your fees. If we don’t hear from you, your fees will be credited to your account.
We look forward to life getting back to normal and seeing everyone at a race track later this year.
