2020 Regular Season Opener Pushed Back to April 10 and 11 for Karts and Stock Cars

Under guidance of local, state, and federal authorities in response to the COVID 19 outbreak, Talladega Short Track/Raceway Park Officials have made the decision to postpone the 2020 Season Opener weekend. The 2020 Season Opener for Talladega Raceway Park(Karts) will be on Friday night April 10th followed by the Season Opener for Talladega Short Track(Stock Cars) on Saturday night Aprill 11th.

The health and safety of our fans, competitors, and staff are top priority and with the uncertainty surrounding not only the racing community, but groups and gatherings nationwide, we felt it to be in the best interest of everyone to delay the start to the season and take the necessary steps to minimize the impacts of this.

The Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series EZ-Go 50 originally scheduled for April 4, will now be ran on Saturday night June 27th.

We intend to run our FULL 2020 season, and will update in the coming days and weeks with any other changes or schedule updates should they be necessary.

We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding, and hope everyone remains safe and healthy during this time. We appreciate your continued support of “The Hornet’s Nest” and look forward to seeing everyone in April!
