NHRA Cancels Northwest Nationals at Pacific Raceways in Seattle – Autoweek

25June 2020

The 2020 NHRA Mello Yello Series Drag Racing schedule took another struck on Thursday with the announcement that the Flav-R-Pac NHRA Northwest Nationals, originally scheduled for July 31-Aug. 2 outside of Seattle, has actually been canceled due to COVID-19 constraints in Washington state and King County that would not allow fans to participate in the occasion.

In spite of discussions with local and track authorities, it was chosen that the state of Washington’s reopening strategy could not guarantee that sufficient fans would be enabled to attend the race weekend to make the event feasible for promoters.

For the event to continue with fans in participation, King County, where the track is located, would require to reach Stage 4 of Washington’s reopening strategy. As of June 25, King County is still in Stage 2 and with the time needed before moving into subsequent phases, it would be very not likely, if not impossible, to come to Phase 4 in time for the rescheduled 2020 event.

“NHRA has actually hosted national occasions at Pacific Raceways for 38 years, consisting of the last 32 directly,” stated John Ramsey, Pacific Raceways general supervisor. “As tough as it is to cancel the race, the health and wellness of our fans, competitors and staff is of the utmost importance to us. The intense side is we now turn our focus to next year and look forward to seeing the fans back as we commemorate the 33rd Yearly Flav-R-Pac NHRA Northwest Nationals in 2021.”

The NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule reboots in Indianapolis on July 11 with the E3 Glow Plugs NHRA Nationals and continues in Indianapolis on July 18 with the Lucas Oil NHRA Summernationals.

The series then travels to the Dodge Mile-High NHRA Nationals Provided By Pennzoil, Aug. 7-9 at Bandimere Speedway outside of Denver. The Mile-High Nationals will kick off a stretch of what NHRA officials hope will be 13 successive weekends of racing before the tour heads to Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, California, for the season-ending Vehicle Club NHRA Finals, Nov. 13-15.
