Statement from David McGrath, Executive Vice President and General Manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway:
"During this time of uncertainty due to COVID-19, the health, safety and well-being of our competitors, officials, staff members and fans is of the utmost importance to us. Due to these unprecedented circumstances, the May 2-3 and May 16-17 Loudon Road Race Series events have been canceled. With this change, round one of the Loudon Road Race Series is tentatively set for June 20-21. The date for the 97th Annual Loudon Classic will be determined after the Laconia Motorcycle Week Association meeting later this month.
In addition, the May 2-3 and May 16-17 Granite State Legends Cars Road Course Series events have been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date. At this time, the May 9-10 Granite State Legends Cars Road Course Series and Oval Series events are still on schedule to bring great racing and entertainment to our fans.
We are monitoring this rapidly evolving situation closely, and we are staying in constant contact with state and local public health officials on the most up-to-date facts.

2020 ASRA/CCS Schedule Updates
The 2020 Schedule has Been Changed - As of April 1, 2020
We appreciate your patience and support during this difficult time for our country as well as our sport.
As you are all aware, the moving target of "shelter in place" state executive orders and Federal CDC warnings, has forced us to re-schedule 2 events and cancel the April event at Carolina Motorsports Park
. With the new target of resuming life as we knew it on May 1, we are still hopeful that the May 2-3
event at Autobahn
will signal the re-start of our 2020 season, should that change we will notify you as soon as we can via email, website and press releases.
First, our Fort Worth office is under a "shelter in place" order until at least April 6, 2020. This means that for now, the best way to contact us is via email. If you call or fax something to us, there is no guarantee when we will be able to respond, but all three of us have daily access to our email. We will update you if that date changes.
As of today, we have confirmation that the April 25-26 event at New Jersey Motorsports Park
will be rescheduled to July 25-26 on the Thunderbolt Circuit
. All pre-entries have been automatically transferred to this event. If you do not wish to participate in that event and you are pre-entered, please contact Chris@ccsracing.us for instructions.
With the Daytona 200 moving to October, the tentative daily schedule is the same as the March event which means the final Team Challenge by Michelin Tire and the ASRA Sprints by Pirelli Tire scheduled for October have been moved to December 5-6 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. ASRA National Championship Awards will be presented in Victory Lane after the final race each day. (Team Challenge on Saturday, ASRA Sprints on Sunday.) We appreciate your patience and support during this difficult time for our country as well as our sport.
Website pages (tracks & schedule) should be updated by the end of today. In the meantime you may Download the updated 2020 Schedule Here (PDF)

VIRUS RESTRICTIONS CAUSE CANCELLATION OF CAROLINA MP EVENT
March 18, 2020
ASRA/CCS in conjunction with Carolina Motorsports Park management have made the difficult decision to cancel the April event at the facility.
"We both agreed without a concrete date for the end of these State restrictions in crowd size, (gathering larger than 100 people are prohibited by the State of SC), it would not be fair to our racers, their families and crews to keep everyone in limbo regarding this race. So we regrettably are forced to announce this cancellation." said ASRA/CCS President Kevin Elliott.
Initial attempts to reschedule at CMP were thwarted by the planned re-pave of the 2.27 mile road course and with the only open date left the same weekend as the Race of Champions. ASRA/CCS is exploring other venues to host the event later in the season. Pre-entered riders will be refunded or transferred to an event of their choice later in the ASRA/CCS season.
UPDATE! -- ENTIRE DAYTONA EVENT PUSHED TO OCTOBER R.O.C.
ASRA President Kevin Elliott announced that all entries and credentials from the March Daytona 200 and the ASRA/CCS event will be honored at the October event, including garage rentals. Also, for those riders who cannot make the October race, transfers, race credits or refunds will be handled on a case by case basis shortly.
The final ASRA Team Challenge will take place at Homestead in December.
UPDATE: Please read the Roadracing World Magazine Article for full details.
