SEEKONK, Mass. — Seekonk Speedway announced on Tuesday that the track has further delayed the start of both the Fast Friday and NASCAR Saturday 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. New guidance released on Tuesday by Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker announced the extension of a Stay-At-Home Advisory until May 18th.
Seekonk Speedway will continue to comply with all local public health and government officials to keep our race teams, drivers, staff and fans safe during this difficult time. The original opening weekend, set for May 29-30, will not happen as scheduled. The Memorial Day Thrill Show, scheduled for May 23, has been cancelled.
Seekonk Speedway will continue to wait for further guidance from officials before releasing a full updated race schedule for the 2020 season. Seekonk will allow ample practice time to race teams before the season takes the green flag, with four nights of practice set to begin as soon as the advisory is lifted, with two divisions each night, and more information is available about crowds and mass gatherings.
“We wish we had better news at this time, but this situation we are dealing with is difficult for all of us,” Ed St. Germain, Seekonk’s Director of Business Development, said. “We look forward to hitting the track for the start of our 75th season of racing as soon as it is safe to do it.”
