‘As is everyone, we have been monitoring this critical situation on a nearly hourly basis as we continue to fight the Covid–19 virus.” It has at times been very trying and frustrating as information changes and the information from the federal and state authorities has not always been in sync, let alone our own county. “says President of Anderson Speedway, Rick Dawson. “The one common theme has been to mitigate the spread by washing hands, keeping a distance from each other and I think most importantly, do not touch your face. We called this common sense when I was growing up. If we can all do this for a few more weeks, hopefully we will kick this thing in its bumper and get back to racing. I would much rather run a race than keep writing press releases!”
