ANTIGONISH, NS – We continue to monitor COVID-19 restrictions and advisories issued by government and health officials as well as the status of the racing series planned to visit Riverside this summer. At this point, no changes have been made to our season which is scheduled to start June 6 with the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour and the Napa Sportsman Series.
As you may be aware, the Pro Stock Tour has recently canceled its May events. Together with them, we will make a decision about the June 6 event as soon as we know what restrictions will be in place at that time. In regard to the IWK 250 (July 16-18), we expect to know its status better by the end of May.
The rest of the season, the Rev it Up Grassroots Motorsports Extravaganza on August 15, and the 200-lap Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour event on August 29 remain as is for now.
For the assurance of fans who have reserved campsites or premium seats for this year, we have revised our refund policy to allow refunds as an option if COVID-19 forces cancelation of an event; if necessary, folks affected would be contacted at that time.
That said, we remain hopeful to have some racing this year and encourage you to do your part to help us get there in abiding by restrictions and recommendations set forth to help prevent the spread. While there is much to consider, our primary focus is the health and safety of our fans and competitors.
Our most sincere thanks to all first-responders and essential workers who have continued to protect us and to provide the goods and services we need.
We appreciate your patience as we work through this evolving situation. As we receive information that affects our season, we will pass it along.
Hope to See You Soon!
NOVA SCOTIA STRONG
To say 2020 is a year unlike any other is an understatement, and especially so here in Nova Scotia.
Besides the COVID-19 pandemic which is affecting folks all over the world, our province has experienced two heartbreaking tragedies over the past three weeks.
We want to convey our deepest sympathy to those impacted by the horrific events of April 18-19 which started in Portapique, and the April 29 loss of six members of the Canadian Armed Forces in the helicopter crash off the coast of Greece; all six were crew members on Halifax-based HMCS Fredericton.
