Thank you for bearing with us while we have been installing additional grandstands and dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. We know everyone has been eager to get back to racing!
We plan on opening Friday, June 12 with ULMS $3000 to Win Super Late Models along with Semi-Lates, Pure Stocks, and FWDs. It will also be Elk County Humane Society Night. They will have some raffles to benefit the shelter. The rest of our 2020 schedule will be tweaked and will be posted in the upcoming days.
Everyone in attendance starting on June 12th will be required to sign a waiver before entering the track acknowledging the risks involved in attending a large event during the COVID-19 pandemic. The waiver is available on our website ( https://thundermountainspeedwaypa.files.wordpress.com/2020/06/release-form.pdf) and fans are encouraged to bring a signed copy of the waiver with them to limit contact with our employees upon arrival. Every fan in attendance will receive a token on a key chain to bring along to future races verifying that they have filled out the COVID-19 waiver. We will have tables set up by the grandstand entrance if you did not bring a form, and you can fill one out at the track. This will slow up the process at the gate, so once again we encourage everyone to print one out at home.
We are encouraging all fans to bring exact change with them to limit contact at the ticket booths. Ticket prices for June 12th will be $20 for General Admission, $18 for Seniors, $10 for Students (7 to 17 years old), under 6 years old are Free. Family Pack (2 Adults and up to 4 Students) $55. Pit Passes are $30. Pits open at 5pm. Grandstands open at 530pm. Racing at 730pm.
We are taking every precautionary measure to ensure a safe environment for fans, participates and our employees. If you are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 and/or are not feeling well, we ask that you please stay home and not attend. We encourage all fans to wear a mask, social distance, and follow CDC guidelines.
We will be having a limited menu at the concession stands. We need to keep a safe distance between patrons per our insurance, so please follow this as best as you can. Also, we are unable to get some of our normal food due to food shortages with Sysco and other food suppliers, so please bear with us over the next few races with substitutions until we can get our normal orders.
Lastly, we installed new grandstands. We will have a large area fenced off near them. Please do not go beyond the fencing. Over the next few weeks we will have this completed and you can move around that area more freely.
As of now our season will be postponed to stay in compliance with the state guidelines surrounding Covid-19. We will continue to follow the current Covid-19 mandates and make any changes as necessary to our schedule.
We are anxious to get the season started just like you are but your safety comes first! Everyone stay safe and please follow the state and federal guidelines. Please follow us for updates on the season by following our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and website
