WAYNESFIELD, Ohio – Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s order prohibiting gatherings of 100 people or more in an effort to stop the spread of the virus, Waynesfield Raceway Park has postponed the Bob Hampshire Classic that had been scheduled for March 28.
“Of course our utmost concern is the health and safety of our fans, staff and race teams. Together we can beat this virus and come out a stronger state and country if we don’t panic, continue to support each and do what the medical experts tell us to do. It’s a shame we have to do this but rest assured we are working to find another date. As of now the other events are still good to go,” said Shane Helms Waynesfield Promoter.
The next event on the Waynesfield Raceway Park calendar is slated for May 23 as the NRA Sprint Invaders take on the teams of the Patriot Sprint Tour in a $3,000-to-win affair. UMP modifieds are also on the card.
Tony Stewart’s Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions return to Waynesfield as part of the 38th annual Ohio Sprint Speedweek on June 14 for the Rick Ferkel Classic. The NRA 360 sprints will also be in action with $200 being awarded to the highest finishing 305 sprint. The USAC D2 Thunder Midgets will also be in competition.
The 12th annual Jack Hewitt Classic will hit the high banks of Waynesfield Raceway Park on July 2 featuring the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (non winged), the FAST winged 410 sprint series, the USAC D2 Thunder Midgets and the 360 verses 305 challenge.
