The coronavirus shutdown has postponed the revival of Gresham Motorsports Park in Central Georgia.
The event has been postponed to a previously announced weekend of October 23-25. However, no date for the actual race has been specified as officials wait to see what the NASCAR event schedule for that weekend will become.
“Without clarity on what we would be able to do on the original scheduled weekend, we felt it was in the best interest of the race, the track, the racers and the fans to postpone till October,” said Bob Dillner, co-promoter of the Peach State Classic.
“We want the Peach State Classic to be what it was building up to be, an unbelievable event that brings a track back to life. We will work diligently with the local community and our partners to make the October event special and the track that Jim Gresham put his heart and soul in.”
The race weekend is scheduled to be the first competitive event held at the half-mile in over six years. It is headlined by a Super Late Model race co-sanctioned by CARS Tour and the Southern Super Series. The Wheelman Racing Series, Modifieds of Mayhem and local Pro Trucks are the scheduled undercard.
The Super Late Model main event is $10,000-to-win.
Officials say advanced ticket holders, along with camping and trackside parking, will be honored during the postponed weekend dates.
