We hope that this finds you healthy and happy. We know that in these trying times both of those appear to be a fight on the daily. But we do believe that with will power and faith, they are possible!
This week we are having to make some very difficult decisions. Please know that these decisions have not come easy, and we have weighed so many options.
Ultimately, we have to do what we feel is in the best interest of all of our Race family, friends, and also the welfare of the Sturgis Dragway. With that being said, we have made the very hard decision to cancel our events for the Month of May.
The Show & Shine and Test & Tune will be moved to June 6 & 7. The other events will NOT be rescheduled.
This situation is obviously very fluid and changing on the daily, but we wanted to make a decision as timely as possible, in order for our racers to plan accordingly.
As of today, we are very hopeful that we will be able to get our race season kicked off in June! We will continue to pray and believe that this too shall pass.
In the mean time we will be doing a lot of heavy lifting out at the Sturgis Dragway, in order to prepare for all of you to join us sooner than later! We miss you all!
Please remember without our members and the support of all of you, the Sturgis Dragway does not exist. We are not your average “small business” that qualifies for the government help options. We are funded by our members, events and Volunteers. So please say an extra prayer for the Sturgis Dragway in this time.
We appreciate each and everyone of you, and for you, we keep the faith and we will dig our heals in and push through!
