It is with deep regret I make the announcement that the AMRA June 27-28 race at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, KY is cancelled. Discussions with the track owner yesterday resulted in the decision based on a number of different factors. The reopening plan by the facility along with state mandates dictate the future and, while initially optimistic, the current reality drove this cancellation. The limitations on spectator numbers was a big consideration as was the potential “shutting down” of the event by local authorities due to the size of the event. Since race preparations begin weeks before the event is to be held it is my duty to be forthcoming with the most accurate information as soon as it is available so that efforts are not wasted. I know this is quite a big disappointment for everyone looking forward to getting back in the groove of normalcy. All we can do is react to the changing circumstances according to the best interests of all while still abiding to state and local guidelines. We will continue to provide information regarding the remaining season’s events as they develop.
