2020 OCS Season Opener Announcement
ROUGEMONT, NC..... Over the last few weeks, we have been working closely with Orange County government and health officials to come up with a plan to safely start hosting race events again in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of OCS employees, competitors, and fans are our top priority, and we want to ensure that all necessary precautions have been put in place before holding our first race of the season.
To that end, we are pleased to announce that we will kick off the 2020 Orange County Speedway racing season on Saturday, June 13th at 7PM. The event will include racing from the Carolina Pro Late Model Series, Chargers, Pure Stock, MOD4, Outlaw FWD, and USAC Midgets. A detailed race day agenda will be posted in the coming days.
For the safety of our officials and competitors, only 8 crew members will be allowed with each car and there will be additional space between each hauler’s pit stall. Before entering the pits, everyone will have their temperature checked and must fill out a COVID-19 form, which can be found on our website, for contact tracing purposes. Face masks will be mandatory any time one leaves their designated hauler/pit area. To limit any large gatherings in the pit area, we will also be preparing a “virtual driver’s meeting” that we will share online as race day approaches.
Open Practice Friday, June 12th
Open practice will be held on Friday, June 12th from 3-8PM. We ask that any competitors who are able to do so, please try to drop your bare wheels off at the tire shop during this time so that we can begin working on mounting race tires ahead of race day.
We know that our loyal fans are anxiously awaiting the chance to get back out to the track, but we ask for your patience as we continue to work through the details for fan attendance for this event, including the possibility of offering a live stream for fans to view from home. More information will be announced as soon as we finalize details.
Thank you to all of our amazing staff members, competitors, and fans, and we look forward to seeing everyone out at America’s Fastest 3/8 Mile Track soon!
