POWRi Forced To Reschedule Turnpike Challenge

BELLEVILLE, Ill. – Ongoing restrictions and special limitations in different states have forced POWRi officials to reschedule the Turnpike Challenge again.

The Turnpike Challenge, featuring the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League and POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League, is now scheduled for May 28-May 31 Creek County Speedway, I-44 Riverside Speedway and Port City Raceway.

The Turnpike Challenge was originally scheduled for March 26-29, but was rescheduled to April 29-May 3 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition, POWRi has also announced the cancelation of nearly 20 POWRi events across all the series’ POWRi sanctions.

“Once we have a clear definition of the guidelines for each state, we will reschedule as many races as possible,” POWRi officials said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those who have been affected by this pandemic.”
