ARCA has postponed this weekend’s ARCA Menards Series East race at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida.
No make-up date has been announced, but the sanctioning body posted a tweet that said “track and series officials are working through potential dates.”
ARCA also said it will “work with the respective race track and local public health officials in all areas in which future ARCA Menards Series, ARCA Menards Series East and ARCA Menards Series West races are scheduled to determine the best course of action for near-term upcoming events.”
The series also said “fans who have purchased tickets are asked to hold onto them until the rescheduled date or further notice.”

Series driver Ty Gibbs also took to Twitter to express his support for the move in light of the current crisis.
The safety of the people is way more concerning than racing. Everyone follow the protocol and if you feel bad go get tested!!!! #CoronavirusPandemic
