After months of speculation and uncertainty surrounding the current health situation in the United States, the Woodbridge Kart Club Board of Directors agreed that in the best interest of public health, safety, and general concern for the motorsports community to cancel the May 29-31 WKC Season Opener/WKA National event at Summit Point Motorsports Park.
Many factors went into this decision and it has not been taking lightly. As of this publishing, Summit Point Motorsports Park is closed until May 18th and the facility is currently awaiting word from state officials if that is going to change and what restrictions will be in place when they are allowed to open. Given the timeline and the general uncertainty surrounding the reopening process for West Virginia and all neighboring states to which our racing family resides, conducting a national event did not seem appropriate at this time.
The WKC Board is extremely grateful and appreciative of the respect and understanding Summit Point Motorsports Park has demonstrated to its stakeholders. They have promised to work hand-in-hand with club level promoters to get through this situation in a way that healthy for both sides. The Board will monitor and explore possibilities going forward in 2020 for additional dates should such an opportunity arise. At this point, the Woodbridge Kart Club points championship series will now be three events: July 11-12 at the Shenandoah Circuit, August 22-23 at Summit Point Main Circuit, and September 25-27 at Pittsburgh International Race Complex.
As always, the Board sincerely appreciation your understanding as these decisions are made. Should you have any questions, the Board can be reached via email at email@example.com. Please be on the lookout for some new, exciting announcements about our club in the coming weeks. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy as we anxiously await getting back to the track in July.
