“Not being able to race at VIR in 2020 was not something we ever imagined, but then again we never thought we’d be faced with something like COVID-19. We will continue to work towards a 10-event schedule for 2020 and will keep everyone posted moving forward. In the meantime, we urge our fans, teams and riders to continue to do the right things to keep them safe and healthy.”
