YORK HAVEN, PA (May 26, 2020) –Baps Motor Speedway will kick off their season opener featuring Super Sportsman, Late Models, Street Stocks and Extreme Stocks this Saturday, May 30 at 7:00 p.m. The four-division show will be open to fans with gates opening at 5:00 p.m. (pit gates open at 4 p.m.) and hot laps at 6:15 pm with a rain date of Sunday May 31.
“We are excited to bring racing back to the speedway with our normal Saturday night program”. We encourage fans to wear masks, practice social distancing and follow CDC guidelines,” said Kolten Gouse.
Everyone in attendance at Saturday’s event will be required to sign a waiver before entering the track acknowledging the risks involved in attending a large event during the COVID-19 pandemic. The waiver is available on BAPS Motor speedway website, www.bapsmotorspeedway.com, and fans are encouraged to bring a signed copy of the wavier with them to limit contact with track employees upon arrival. Every fan in attendance will receive a ticket to bring along to future races verifying they have already filled out the COVID-19 waiver.
Due to social distancing guidelines the speedway will only be permitted to open to fans at a limited capacity. A plan is in place to accommodate reserved seat holders and social distancing guidelines. A reserved seat holder gate will open at 4:30 p.m. at the tunnel, half hour before general admission gates open. In that hour track employees will work with reserved seat holders on finding a seat in the grandstands that adheres to the social distancing guidelines in place. Reserved seat holders will be required to show their reserved seat card for early entrance.
The track will have a limited number of masks available for purchase at the novelty stand. Speedway management are taking precautionary measures to ensure a safe environment for fans, participants, and employees as they make the return to racing. If you are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 and/or are not feeling well, we ask that you please stay home.
Fans are encouraged to bring exact change with them as an additional measure to limit contact points at the ticket booths. Ticket pricing is $15 for general admission & seniors, $5 for students (13-17 with ID), kids 12 & under free and $30 for a pit pass. No $2 off coupons will be excepted this week to limit contact with employees.
Baps Motor Speedway concession stands will be closed and will offer several food trucks on site that will be selling food and drinks. Driver Payout will be mailed for the first couple weeks of racing with proper W-9 forms completed.
Fans are encouraged to wear a mask, social distance, follow CDC guidelines, bring a signed copy of the waiver and use exact change when possible.
