NASCAR’s Pinty’s Series released a statement Friday announcing the postponement of its season-opening race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada.
The race, scheduled for May 17, is the latest postponement by NASCAR related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The statement follows.
“Following discussions with medical experts and provincial and federal officials, NASCAR will postpone the Pinty’s Series season opening race at CTMP. More information will be provided as it becomes available.”
The Canadian series’ race would have happened eight days after the next scheduled Cup Series race, May 9 at Martinsville Speedway. That race is in doubt because of a Virginia Stay at Home order that lasts through June 10. NASCAR has yet to announce a revised schedule for 2020.
NASCAR’s PEAK Mexico Series has already had its season postponed.
