NASCAR Cancels All Races For March And April Including Texas
With the threat of Coronavirus and COVID-19 spreading, NASCAR has announced that all races are postponed until at least May 3. That includes the "O'Reilly Auto Parts 500" that was supposed to take place on March 27-29 at Texas Motor Speedway. NASCAR states that the decision to postpone racing was made with the health and safety of fans, staff, competitors, race teams and media as the top priority.
"Considering the circumstances that NASCAR had no choice but to postpone the race, we obviously support that because public safety comes first," said Eddie Gossage, Texas Motor Speedway President and General Manager. "As soon as we have information on the rescheduled date, we will share it with our fans but we encourage them to hold onto their tickets and plan to join us for the rescheduled O'Reilly Auto Parts 500. It's always the right time to do the right thing and we're going to do right by our fans."
Ticketholders on file may use their March 27-29, 2020 tickets for the postponed event, choose to receive an event credit for the full amount paid plus an additional 20%, or choose to receive a full refund of their purchase price. The event credit can be applied toward any admissions, including, but not limited to, grandstand seating, infield tickets, camping, fan hospitality and pit passes. The 120% event credit can be used during the remaining 2020 or 2021 seasons for a NASCAR-sanctioned event at any Speedway Motorsports owned track, subject to availability.
Fans are advised to hold their current tickets and are asked to complete an exchange request form at TexasMotorSpeedway.com to start the process. Ticket office representatives will follow up with fans within 2-3 weeks regarding the status of their request.
