Last place to hold public event cancels weekend races.

It was two weeks ago today when the effect of COVID-19 began to be noticed locally with the cancellation of games and events. Cochran Motor Speedway was the last location of public events, holding races that weekend. They had races scheduled for Saturday but announced this week via their website they were cancelled. The post says track official will continue to monitor the situation and make an event by event decision based upon the well-being fans, drivers crew members, and staff.

The racers raced on at Cochran Speedway.





Though the coronavirus has knocked out pro sports and thrown high school sports into disarray, the race weekend at Cochran Motor Speedway has gone on as scheduled. A large crowd was on hand for the world championship makeup races that were postponed due to rain December 28 of last year. Before the races began, longtime CMS employee Willis Wombles was recognized for 55 years in short track racing, seven at Cochran Speedway. Heíll be retiring at the end of the year. Tomorrow will be The Cochran Clash. Gates open at noon, driverís meeting at 2 pm with races to follow.
