COVID-19 PANDEMIC CANCELS "BATTLE OF THE BAY" SPEEDWEEK; PACE RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR EVENTS TO POTENTIALLY BE ADDED LATER IN 2020 AT DELAWARE, GEORGETOWN, POTOMAC & WINCHESTER

April 1, 2020       FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
(Pulaski, PA)...With stay at home orders and gathering bans in effect throughout the entire Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Canada through at least the end of April due to the COVID-19 pandemic, RUSH Racing Series Directors along with the promoters of Delaware International, Georgetown, Potomac, and Winchester Speedways have cancelled the "Battle of the Bay" Mid-Atlantic Speedweek scheduled for April 15-18 for the Pace Performance RUSH Dirt Late Model Series together with Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC.  RUSH Directors and track promoters will work together on potential 2020 Touring Series dates at each track for later in the year.

"Everyone was really looking forward to the 'Battle of the Bay' kicking off our season but right now the focus is on everyone's health and safety," expressed RUSH Director Vicki Emig.  "The first two years of the 'Battle of the Bay' were tremendous with car counts ranging from 40-53 at all seven completed events.  The 'Raelyn Huffman Memorial' added a lot of stature to the Delaware race last year and the other promoters all increased their show's payoff.  We were looking for even more forward momentum this year as many new racers were planning on taking part.  The promoters have shown an interest in rescheduling Tour shows for later in the year so we'll be working with them in the coming weeks to see how we can best coordinate these for everyone's benefit."
       
The RUSH Late Model Touring Series next scheduled events are Saturday and Sunday, May 16-17 at Stateline Speedway in Busti, NY and Eriez Speedway in Erie, PA.  Stay tuned for further updates on these events in May.
