ATTICA, Ohio – Due to the State of Ohio’s orders prohibiting gatherings of over 10 people because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Attica Raceway Park has cancelled racing planned for May.

After being off Friday, Aug. 14 for the Attica Fair, the track will return to racing for three straight double-header weekends – Friday. Aug. 21 with the all three divisions and Saturday, Aug. 22 with the 410 and 305 sprints and dirt trucks (no points or late models in cooperation with Oakshade Raceway and Wayne County Speedway); Friday, Aug. 28 (410 and 305 sprints, late models for championship night) and Saturday, Aug. 29 (410 and 305 sprints and dirt trucks); and Friday, Sept. 11 (410 and 305 sprints and dirt trucks.
“The revised schedule is tentative depending on when the governor allows us to get the season started.
