ALLENTOWN, Pa. – As a result of new COVID-19 mitigation efforts announced by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf on Dec. 10, the Ironton Telephone Allentown (Pa.) Indoor Races scheduled for Jan. 8-9 have been postponed.
“We did everything we could to host the event as planned from full capacity, to limited capacity, to no fans in attendance and the events streamed via pay-per-view,” said event promoter Len Sammons.
Despite the best efforts of the Indoor Auto Racing Championship Series fueled by VP Racing Fuels and the PPL Center, the latest guidelines put an end to any hope of hosting the event on the scheduled date.
“The present guidelines are scheduled to be in place until Jan. 4, which would be our first day of setting up the race track,” added Sammons. “Indoor gatherings in Pennsylvania are now limited to just 25 people, making it impossible to host the events.”
Updates on the remaining Indoor Auto Racing Championship Series schedule and possible Allentown rescheduled event will be announced at a later date.
