Friday was supposed to be the kickoff to Ohsweken Speedway’s silver anniversary season. Unfortunately it is being put on hold.
With the COVID-19 pandemic wreaking havoc on all sports around the world, Ohsweken Speedway was not an exception, after race officials have temporarily put the 2020 season on hold, as they are following the community directives and social distancing guidelines set forth during the pandemic.
May 8 was supposed to be the Test and Tune session, before the 25th season opener, presented by Nathan Ackland Insurance, was to take place on May 15, but has been forced to postpone the session to a later date in order to follow the community directives and social distancing guidelines set forth during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
A release said that details regarding the 2020 season, or potential schedule changes will be announced as soon as information becomes available.
“Ohsweken Speedway officials are asking all of our drivers, crew members, officials and fans to stay home and do your part to help stop the spread so we can all get back to racing as soon as possible.”
The 25th season at the Big O looks to be a big one if it can be given a green light. Below is the full schedule of events
