Event postponed

WAYNESFIELD — Because of Gov. Mike DeWine’s order limiting gatherings to no more than 10 people in response to COVID-19 pandemic, Waynesfield Raceway Park has postponed Saturday’s scheduled event.

Waynesfield promoter Shane Helms said he is continuing to examine dates later in the year to make up not only Saturday’s event — which was to feature the NRA Sprint Invaders and the Patriot Sprint Tour along with the UMP modifieds — but also the third annual Bob Hampshire Classic which had been scheduled for March 28.

The next event scheduled for “The Field” is a visit by Tony Stewart’s Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions during the 38th annual Ohio Sprint Speedweek. The traveling All Stars will stop at Waynesfield for the third leg of speedweek June 14 for the third annual Rick Ferkel Classic. Head to for more information.
