CONCORD, N.C. — After much consideration and in cooperation with several tracks, World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series events scheduled through March 31 have been postponed.
The decision comes after President Donald Trump and the White House Coronavirus Task Force issued new guidelines, including asking Americans to curtail events and increase social distancing for a 15-day period through March 31 to help “slow the spread.”
“It is our hope that we will be able to reschedule the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series races originally planned for Friday, March 27 at Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, Tenn., and Saturday, March 28 at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, S.C.,” series officials said in a statement. “The World of Outlaws will continue to monitor developments across our nation and will make decisions on future events when appropriate.
“We would like to thank each and every one of our fans, competitors, tracks and partners for their support during this time,” the statement continued. “Our staff is working around the clock to keep our fans informed, engaged and entertained during this break in the action, but ultimately, we will go racing again as soon as we deem possible.”
