April 30, 2020 Five Mile Point Speedway Update...

We just want to remind everyone that our originally scheduled open practice (this Saturday) and the 70th Anniversary STSS Modified Special (this Sunday) have been postponed.  We do hope to make that race event up at a later date.

We have been working with a number of other local and regional race track owners throughout the state of New York with a plan to move forward when the time arrives.  We reached out to about a dozen track owners and operators and formatted a plan that will be safe, efficient and agreeable for all involved.  

We have put together the proposal to the state of New York for review and have had a number of phone conversations with state officials. Collectively we have been sharing thoughts and ideas with officials of what things may look like when re-openings begin throughout the state. We can say first hand that state officials have been extremely cooperative in our phone conversations.

To date, not one racing facility in New York State has been given state approval to operate a private test, open practice or racing event.  If a facility operator is telling you otherwise, it frankly is just not true.  

We anticipate when things begin to open back up in New York State in all industries it will include limited numbers of people in group settings.  Based on regions and over time those numbers will be expanded upon.  

We do not expect to have racing in New York State anywhere during the month of May.  Of course, the current dynamics change daily.  We expect once things will open up in the racing industry that it will happen in three phases:  1. private testing with a limited number of race personnel only.  2. open practice allowing a larger number of race personnel.  3. racing with a limited number of participants and/or spectators.  

We also expect the same type of restrictions that will apply in New York State will also apply to other states and regions in the northeast.  A number of state governors in our region are working together to open up in a very similar fashion moving forward.  It appears to us that they will move forward closely in step with one another.

We are prepared to move forward as directed by the state of New York when the time comes.  Like all of our teams and fans we are anxious to get back to the tracks in in the northeast.  This will only happen when the time is deemed appropriate by the state of New York and we will be ready when that time comes.

In the meantime please be safe and take all of the social distancing guidelines serious.  We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
