Story By: BRETT DEYO / FONDA SPEEDWAY – FONDA, NY – The 2020 Fonda Speedway Race Car Show to be held at the ViaPort Rotterdam March 27-29 has been canceled due to the current regulations in place to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Fonda Speedway management team was set to host its first-ever ‘Fonda Race Car Show’ at the mall and the response had been overwhelming. At the time of the cancelation, some 91 vehicles had filed an entry to be part of the pre-season event.
“Unfortunately, with the regulations in place as we all combat COVID-19, we’ve had to cancel the event,” Fonda Speedway promoter Brett Deyo said. “We’d like to thank all our registrants and the management of the ViaPort Rotterdam for all their support. We look forward to another opportunity to present a show in 2021.”
Fonda Speedway management will continue to monitor national and local regulations, providing updates as needed. The season is scheduled to open on April 11 with the first practice session on the all-new clay surface.
“We will announce any schedule adjustments as we get closer to the season,” Deyo added. “We have full support of the Fonda Fair Board for make-up events, if-needed. Our main concern now is keeping our racing community healthy.”
