TRENTON, N.J. – Len Sammons Productions has announced the race dates for five Indoor Auto Racing Series events at four different venues.
Specific event information, however, remains delayed until the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions become clearer for the three different states where those indoor events are held annually.
In addition, the Pioneer Pole Buildings Motorsports 2021 Presented by Sunoco Distributed by Insinger Performance Race Car and Trade Show will return to the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA for a 13th consecutive year on Jan. 22-24.
“Our hopes is that we can promote all five events, but at this point there is no way of knowing,” said promoter Len Sammons.
The 2020 Indoor Auto Racing Series fueled by VP Racing Fuels season finale was postponed by the COVID-19 virus a day before it was scheduled to begin in March in Syracuse, N.Y.
That event has now been tentatively rescheduled and will kick off the Indoor Season at the New York State Fairgrounds Exposition Center on Nov. 20-21.
“Much like other sports held indoors, COVID-19 restrictions remain unclear and ever changing at this point,” said Sammons.
“Obviously the most tentative event would be the first in late November in Syracuse, but we would love to host that event for all the fans and racers so eager to attend earlier this year before it was cancelled at the last minute.”
The Indoor Concrete Series featuring the TQ Midgets, Champ Karts and Slingshot is scheduled to continue at the PPL Center in Allentown, Pa., on Jan. 8-9 for the sixth consecutive year.
The weekend after the Motorsports Show, the 19th annual Indoor Auto Racing Series events inside New Jersey’s historical Atlantic City Boardwalk Hall are on the calendar.
The NAPA Know How weekend in Atlantic City will be held Jan. 29-30.
The only LSP Indoor Series event held on a clay racing surface comes up next on the schedule. The fourth annual East Coast Indoor Dirt Nationals featuring the 600 Micro Sprints is set to return to New Jersey’s CURE Insurance Arena on Feb. 19-20.
The season finale would then follow back in Syracuse, N.Y., on March 12-13.
“The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center opened last week to several small shows, but it had been closed, as all the arena’s our Indoor Auto Racing Series events are held in, since late March,” said Sammons.
“Our dates are secured with each venue and host hotel. Our commitment is to hold each event but at this point we cannot make any firm plans. With our first event still four months away, we feel we have plenty of time to wait during these very fluid times.”
