This week WISSOTA Officials announced that the 2020 Speedway Motors WISSOTA 100 that was scheduled to happen mid-September in Fergus Falls has been postponed to next year.
In a statement WISSOTA Executive Director Carson Gramm said, “Our preparedness plan for the virus was extensive and provided many safety measures that followed the current state regulations.” Gramm went on to say. “We developed our safety plan with strict precautions because the event needs to have more people than currently allowed to sustain the purse for the drivers. Unfortunately, we were unable to obtain the approval needed for the event based on the number of people needed for the purse.”
There was a time where officials were thinking about moving the races to a track outside of Minnesota. Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, South Dakota was one of the options. However, after discussing everything it was determined that not holding the event this year made the most sense.
The planning for the 2021 Speedway Motors WISSOTA 100 at I-94 Sure Step Speedway in Fergus Falls has already begun.
