- The April 18th Irwindale Speedway race has been rescheduled for Saturday, December 19th, which will now be our 2020 championship finale.
- The current plan to make up the March – Kern County Raceway event is a ‘Double Header” weekend at the “October Classic” at Kern.
- Irwindale Speedway reported that they are solid for our July 18th
- We are working with Las Vegas Motor Speedway on our November date, if that date moves to 11/14 from 11/21, does anyone have issue with the possible date change.
Thank you to all the teams for your support – we appreciate your commitment to the series.
