Cherokee Speedway Postponed Until Further Notice

 

All racing scheduled for March 20th and March 21st at Cherokee Speedway has been postponed. Events at the Speedway have been postponed until further notice due to COVID-19. We appreciate everyone and everyone's love for the sport. The Cherokee staff is truly thankful to be blessed with such dedicated and passionate fans. It's encouraging to see that in the posts and comments on social media. Everyone's safety and well being is our first and foremost importance. We intend to open the gates and race when we are allowed but only when our state leaders feel it is safe and permissible. No one truly understands this virus and the not knowing is what drives fear in all of us. We trust our elected officials and we feel they know what is better for people as a whole. The Gaffney law enforcement will keep us aware of the local situation and let us know when we can resume operating Cherokee Speedway. Hopefully this will be a short period of time and we can all get back to "The Place Your Mama Warned You About"!
