(Terre Haute, IN) Officials from the Terre Haute Action Track, in Terre Haute, IN, have announced that the 2020 season opener, presented by Scott’s Custom Colors & Towing, set for Sunday, April 26 has been canceled due to COVID-19 and the restrictions that come with it.
The event was set to feature the MSCS Sprint Cars, Indiana Late Model Series, and the Scott’s Custom Colors DIRTcar Modifieds. With social distancing and stay-at-home orders in place across the nation to limit the spread of Coronavirus, racing events throughout the month of April are impossible to pull off.
