(March 13, 2020 – 3:00 p.m.) Sacramento, CA … After deliberating with board members, sponsors, and legal representatives, the NARC King of the West Racing Series has decided to follow California’s recommendations and postpone tomorrow’s (March 14th) season opening event at Kern County Raceway Park. The NASCAR portion of the “Dual Show” program will continue to run as scheduled.“Many of our teams are towing long distances to get to this facility,” said Jim Allen, NARC series GM. “We took this precaution and postponed early in the event gets cancelled at the last minute by government officials.”
We realize that the world is in a current state of panic over the COVID-19 virus and reactions and decisions seem to change on a minute-by-minute basis. Following government recommended “group gathering” protocol, the series has determined that it is in the best financial interest and safety of everybody involved to postpone the event to a later date.
A rescheduled race date will be announced once the turmoil and scope of the overall virus situation is fully determined.
