NASCAR sets Jennerstown as new makeshift Modified Tour opener

NASCAR revealed on Friday that it has rescheduled the Whelen Modified Tour season-opening race, the Wade Cole Memorial 133 presented by Dunleavy’s Truck & Trailer Repair, to Sunday, June 21 to Pennsylvania’s Jennerstown Speedway.

The makeshift season opener, which was postponed by rain, had been scheduled for Saturday at South Carolina’s Myrtle Beach Speedway.

The event will be held without fans in attendance in line with the current NASCAR policy during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Jennerstown’s originally scheduled Whelen Modified Tour event slated for May 23 has been rescheduled for Saturday, August 22.

Event procedures for June 21 will be significantly modified in accordance with CDC, OSHA and state and local government recommendations – teams will be limited to eight people per car number. That will include all members of the team, from driver to crew members to car owners.

The event will include practice and qualifying, and the race will not have pit stops.

In addition, NASCAR and the track will be maintaining social distancing protocols throughout the event.
