    We could be in for a disappointing summer. My home track (Famoso, Bakersfield CA) announced closing for 30 days (at least).
    The opinion the virus is going to be around all summer....will we be shut down all summer ?
    What is feedback from your tracks ?

    I feel for thise in areas with limited track pretty options. I'm lucky we have 8 tracks within 2 hrs and 3 within 45 min of us. If the NHRA or IHRA tracks close there is 1 unsanctioned track 30 minutes away that I know will run regardless of this
    covid-19 BS.
    Really not trying to make lite of this but unless someone has pre-existing health issues there is no reason for all the panic.

        Not only limited track options, limited race season lengths. We can race year round here if it ain't raining, but if your season is only a few months, losing two or three is a nightmare!

          Man, the track closing are a bummer. I wonder if they'll close Irwindale. Being so close to LA and all. Some of those test and tunes on Thursdays are PACKED.

            In PA the dirt tracks ran this last weekend, sprint cars. News was all over it since it was literally the only sport that was held. We’ll see about next weekend. Drag strips don’t really get going here until April.

            Cecil Co Dragway was closed last weekend. Strongly suspect it will be closed for the next few weeks. Governor closed bars and restaurants in MD also as of 5pm today.
