Ongoing restrictions as the result of COVID-19 force All Star visits to Lernerville and Sharon to be postponed
BROWNSBURG, Ind. (April 23, 2020) - In accordance with the stay-at-home extensions enforced in Ohio and Pennsylvania, and the ongoing social distancing guidelines put into place by the CDC as the result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 visits to Lernerville Speedway and Sharon Speedway on Friday and Saturday, May 1-2, have been postponed.
The Lernerville Speedway event will now be contested on its previously scheduled make-up date of Friday, May 22. The program will kick-off what is now a three-race weekend through the Keystone State, concluding with the two-day Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday and Sunday, May 23-24.
