    Central Missouri Speedway Unveils Revised 2020 Race Schedule!


    Central Missouri Speedway
    May 7, 2020
    For Immediate Release

    (Warrensburg, Missouri) After weeks of planning and discussion, Central Missouri Speedway (CMS) is pleased to announce a revised 2020 Race Schedule and opening night, which is set for Saturday, May 23rd during Memorial Day weekend! At this time, there are 17 race nights planned with two tentative dates that may be added, depending on how the season unfolds.

    Owners and promoters Earl and Susan Walls stated, “We’ve had to edit our previously announced schedule due to COVID-19 and as we eluded to in our April 14th press release, there are some major modifications.” Most of the modifications involve special events and touring series. CMS tried to keep as many weeks as possible on the schedule for its five regular race divisions, which includes unsanctioned A-Mods, Street Stocks, B-Mods, Mod-Lites, and Pure Stocks.

    CMS will hold a test and tune practice session on Saturday, May 16th with start times and price information to be announced. The session provides drivers a chance to test and tune their cars prior to opening night and the track staff will fine-tune the new MyRacePass scoring database. There will be no grandstand admission and a very limited concessions menu will be available. Drivers and crews must abide by social distancing and always leave plenty of space between haulers in the pits.

    At this time, while there are no restrictions on the number of people in large gatherings in the county; state and local health department guidance states social distancing must be in place at large events. What this means for CMS is that we will utilize social distancing concepts in the grandstand seating areas and within other aspects and areas of the race program once the season begins.

    Social distancing measures will have an impact on the number of attendees, which effects crowd size. Earl Walls stated, “Although we’ve kept some special events, at this time we are reducing the amount of larger purse events, at least until we can have enough people in the grandstands to make sense from an operational standpoint to hold them. If regulations change in the future, we may alter the schedule accordingly.”

    CMS encourages people who have already been together in social circumstances, such as families or race teams, to sit together and leave social distancing space in between others. Everyone attending events should expect change and be mindful and respectful of each other while on the premises. If you are sick, or think you are sick, please stay home. If you feel you need to wear a mask or additional protective equipment, please do.

    As previously announced, a special $10 adult admission is in effect for opening night, Saturday, May 23rd with kids remaining their regular price of $6. “We’ve all faced challenges related to the current situation and we sincerely thank the drivers, fans, and our outstanding group of sponsors and business partners for their continued patience and understanding during these unprecedented times and we look forward to seeing everyone very soon,” stated the Walls.

    CMS is planning and end-of-year celebration once the scheduled events conclude; however, this year may not include a championship point’s fund. Driver registration is back into effect as of this release and will remain at the reduced rate of $50 for the season.
