ROSSBURG, Ohio – The USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship event scheduled for July 15 at Eldora Speedway has been canceled due to orders from the Ohio Department of Health’s to restrict mass gatherings and spectator events at large venues, which remains in effect as a part of the state’s overall response to the COVID-19 health crisis.
Eldora officials have been working with local and state officials since April to establish re-opening guidance. They submitted a detailed proposal to Governor Mike DeWine, the Ohio Department of Health, and the Darke County General Health District, for the return of spectator events at 50 percent capacity in July and August.
With the Ohio Department of Health’s orders in place, spectators remain prohibited from the grandstands of large venues in the state of Ohio. Among those included is Eldora Speedway. Eldora Speedway and the World of Outlaws announced on Monday the cancelation of the 37th Kings Royal.
Race fans are asked to retain all tickets, credentials, passes and receipts they have received to date for the weekend of racing, which was to be a part of the festivities for the 37th Kings Royal Weekend.
USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car racing resumes this week with three races on the docket to start the month of July, at the Terre Haute Action Track on July 1 and a doubleheader weekend at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, Ind., on July 3-4, both of which are co-sanctioned by the Midwest Sprint Car Series.
