Granite Falls, NC – The promoters of the KENDA Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series presented by AOMC have spent the last month with one goal in mind and that was to make plans for racing to resume in a safe manner and in complete compliance with national, state, and local guidelines and restrictions. Unfortunately, due to the ever-changing landscape due to the Covid-19 virus, and varying rules and regulations on both the state and county level, the series was unable to secure a location for racing to resume on the previously scheduled weekend of May 23-24.
Racing will resume beginning on the previously scheduled date of July 18-19 at the Hidden Valley Golf Course in Glen Daniel, WV. The new third round of the series will take place at Rockcrusher Farm in Young Harris, GA before moving to a back-to-back weekend of racing at Harleywood in Bristol, VA. Details for the season finale will be announced as soon as possible.
“This is an absolutely crazy time to be trying to schedule races,” said series founder, Jason Hooper. “The information available in a lot of states is unclear at best, and non-existent in others. Combine that with conflicting information given from authorities at the state and local levels, we felt it was in the best interest of the series and our racers to postpone racing until a time when we felt it would be possible to secure all of the necessary approvals to put on a race,” Hooper added. “We feel confident that by July the picture will be much clearer in regards to hosting races in a post-Covid-19 environment and we will be able to have fun and safe remainder of our season.”
The series will now be a six round championship. Instead of the normal four days of drops for championship points given to the classes who would receive drops, only two days will be given.
