Saturday night racing at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Bullring was canceled by the COVID-19 pandemic on Wednesday.
“This was a very difficult decision to make,” LVMS president Chris Powell said about the remainder of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series being canceled. “But even as our state looks to reopen some select businesses in the coming days, it seems highly unlikely that we will be able to have crowds of 50 or more until the end of summer at the earliest.
“For us, running these events without fans is not an option.”
A statement from LVMS said the US Legends Cars Nationals on Oct. 16 and 17 as well as the West Coast Short Track Championships on Nov. 21 remain on the schedule.
“I want to express our appreciation as well as our regret to the drivers and teams who compete at the Bullring,” Powell said. “Also, we feel for the loyal fans who enjoy attending races at the Bullring.”
