MECHANICSBURG, Pa. – Officials from Williams Grove Speedway have made the decision to cancel Friday’s scheduled program as the United States continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic.

“Williams Grove Speedway will not be racing this Friday, March 20, based on the recommendations of the governor of Pennsylvania,” the track said in a statement. “The status of future races will be announced.”

Williams Grove Speedway was one of three tracks, joined by Lincoln Speedway and Port Royal Speedway, that were active in the state of Pennsylvania over the weekend.

On Monday, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf stated in a press conference he would not force race tracks to close in the state despite health and safety concerns.

Port Royal Speedway officials also announced on Tuesday that its facility would be closed for the next two weeks.
