East Tennessee Dirt Track Owners Temporarily Suspend Operations (No Racing For Next 30 Days)

BULLS GAP, Tenn. (March 18, 2020) – Landon Stallard (Volunteer Speedway), Mitch McCarter (411 Motor Speedway), Roger Sellers (Smoky Mountain Speedway), and Gary Hall (Tazewell Speedway) have collectively decided to suspend operations for at least 30 days in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The group will closely monitor the situation in coordination with federal, state, local, and public health officials along with information that is based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  

Race schedules at the tracks must be altered due to recommendations to limit crowd sizes to stem the spread of the virus during the declared state of emergency by President Donald Trump and the White House Coronavirus Task Force. The East Tennessee tracks will tentatively plan to return to racing no earlier than Friday, April 17 with the exception of the Bill Corum Memorial event at Tazewell Speedway currently scheduled for Saturday, April 11. A decision on this event will be made on April 1.  

The national and regional touring series events that are scheduled at each facility during this time period will be evaluated by each track and series involved to find a suitable reschedule date if available. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event at 411 originally scheduled for Friday, April 3 has already been moved to Friday, June 26.
