Spectator Drag Racing Cancelled For 2020; Will Resume in 2021
Gales Ferry, CT (July 7, 2020) – The New England Street Outlaw Series (NESOS) regrets to inform our competitors and fans that we have made the decision to cancel the remaining four drag racing events for the 2020 season at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in Thompson, CT. After announcing a series of seven events at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park earlier this year the initial three events were cancelled in April, May and June due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions on events. The remaining events slated for July, August, September and October have now been cancelled. This decision was not an easy one to make but many factors played a role in deciding this fate, primarily the COVID-19 situation that is affecting us all. The safety and well-being of our competitors, fans and track crew comes first. We also were faced with various unexpected logistic items, new protocols and continued restrictions that made it so we could not deliver the event our fans and racers were expecting. This is unfortunate but we feel that it is best to cancel the 2020 season. We look forward to resuming drag racing in 2021 at Thompson Speedway. We thank you all for your continued support and overwhelming excitement when we announced the original 7 NESOS events earlier this year. Stay safe!
