Delaware Speedway 2020 EVENT SEASON CANCELLED
July 16, 2020
Delaware Speedway announced today the cancellation of their racing events season for 2020.
“The momentum of the last few seasons throughout all weekly divisions and Special Events have been incredibly rewarding for the organizers and fans of Delaware Speedway. We trust that our teams, spectators, partners and stakeholders stand with us in this difficult decision, and prepare to return strong for the 2021 racing season” said Russ Urlin of Delaware Speedway. “We wish all our home competitors luck in their summer 2020 ventures”, Russ continued.
Similar announcements have also been made by CTMP (Canadian Tire Motorsports Park) among other premiere Canadian Motorsports venues.
As the longest consecutive running track in Canada, Delaware Speedway is working on building a one-off race (where possible) to continue this historical record well into the future. Please stay tuned, and show your support online to keep this record alive.

TRACKSIDE – June 2020
As disappointing as this is to Drivers, Fans, Promoters and Track Owners we are still not back racing as we need to continue to follow the COVID-19 guidelines. There have been a few practices for drivers and limited crew based on the guidelines but no fans in the stands. It horrifically sad to all! Every week, when they make the announcements, I keep thinking maybe this week, they will allow restricted access by the fans. Enough that a track could survive and not run at a loss. Drivers and cars are mostly ready! Fans are defintly ready! Management is ready! I just thought, its time to maybe get some normalcy back in the season and hopefully the rest will fall into place. Practice sessions (no fans) have been and are taking place. A lot of changes in race car equipment and changes in drivers moving to a new division. It’s probably one of the strongest and most interesting drivers line up in a long time in most divisions.
