FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
UPDATE (July 29, 2020) –
UPDATE: With his permission we would like to give everyone an update on Barry Skelly, our longtime novelty stand vendor. Track officials have been in contact with Skelly as often as possible while he is recovering. Skelly would like to thank everyone for the prayers and well wishes. He said there are so many that he doesn’t have time to thank everyone individually but that they mean a lot and he appreciates each one.
Barry’s spirits are high and so far he has received a positive prognosis from the doctors. Please continue to keep Barry in your thoughts and prayers. We hope to see Barry back at the track soon taking photos and selling t-shirts.
Abbottstown, PA (July 27, 2020) – Thursday night, July 23, prior to the start of the Gettysburg Clash, a vendor at the track was not feeling well and was tended to by EMTs. The vendor was transported to a local hospital.
Speedway officials were notified Saturday morning that the vendor had tested positive for COVID-19. Track employees and vendors were notified and the vendor’s stand was closed for Saturday’s Lucas Oil Pro Pulling event. The stand will remain closed for the foreseeable future.
In the meantime we will continue to provide hand sanitizing stations throughout the venue and have plexiglass in place at stands throughout the track.
When attending an event at the track masks are encouraged and please continue to practice social distancing guidelines and if you are not feeling well please stay home. Our partnership with Flo Racing allows fans that are not able to attend events in person to catch all of the racing action from the safety and comfort of their homes.
Thank you to everyone for your continued support of Lincoln Speedway and for your cooperation during these unprecedented times. Please continue to follow us on social media and check our website, lincolnspeedway.com for any additional updates or changes.
