BELLEVILLE, Ill. – POWRi officials have announced the postponement of the sanctioning body’s slate of events set for the month of April, including a doubleheader weekend for the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League.

Both POWRi and track officials have postponed the I-30 Nationals, scheduled for April 17-18 at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.

Other postponements include a POWRi WAR Sprint Car League weekend on April 24-25 and a POWRi Iowa Sprint Car League event on April 24, co-sanctioned with the WAR Sprints.

POWRi officials and track officials are evaluating the 2020 schedule as the COVID-19 situation continues to develop.

“We continue to implement precautionary and preparatory measures in accordance with CDC guidance and government health authorities to ensure the health and safety of our fans, teams and their families,” officials from the sanctioning body said in a statement. “We intend to have as many races as possible this season, with future rescheduling soon to be determined as we continue to monitor this situation closely with public health officials and medical experts.”
