Thank you all and plz keep positive and spread positive it makes everything better. A simple smile calms me . Imagine if we all smile. We will be racing soon. Luv you all . ...

As much as I hate too we will be changing our points race and start date . April will not be any points races.we modified our schedule to start on May 1st . This is not a hasty decision but the safest . If we get open before i will post but they will be TestnTune or gambler races. Or a no points race. I very sorry to do this but saftey and a force of hand is where we are. I Thank you for your support and Trust in this very trying time for all of us . Thank you Mike ...

I'll come up for a tnt as soon as possible. My heart feels for you mike.

Understand...but still saddened.

You made the safe choice,thanks for looking out for all of us.

Just send it no prep race is not on the schedule for May 2nd?

Mike we know it’s just as hard for you as it is for us. We will not let you down when we are allowed to race

Test and tune is what I like the most

I don't think this is the first time points started in May. It's all good Mike. You dont have a choice. It is what it is. People will adapt.

SAFETY for ALL!!

Been thinking of you Mike. We all wanna race but gotta do what is right for now. Carlisle just announced Spring Meet will be end of May instead of late April. This is a challenge for you for sure. We will be there when you open. Count on us all ! We are family! May we all stay healthy in the meantime.

no problem....good call.

We support you bud!

Mike wanted to make sure you got my email, with all the hotel information

Doing what you can with the cards you've been dealt.

gotta do what you gotta do MIke

Mike you think of racers first and foremost. GREAT leadership!!!

It rains most of April anyways. No sweat. You made the right call

When you open we will be there

We understand , we know you are making the right decision for us and have our best interest in everything you decide . The best to you Mike I know this is really stressful for you but all of us cheer you on And know your doing your very best, hang in there my friend, everything will be fine in due time 😊

I know that was tough to do buddy , but you had to make a tough decision that is best for you, Mikey , staff and patrons we are all behind you 100, hang in there , we will all work threw it

Your doing your best i appreciate that

Racers I Have had multiple phone calls on this . Im looking into anything and all i can do. Ill keep you posted as news comes in. were all waiting to actually hear what we can and can not do, There are so many different situations that can happen . We wanna make the best and most responsible decision to ensure the race tack continued success . Anyone can private message me or call with questions . (814 329 0810 ) Plz bear in mind that this is not just our track . I've had Conversation with Greg Miller and Elmer Watcher . The racers and tracks need to stick together to do the best for all . Thank you for all the Support . Mike McCracken

Private test are expensive . like 20 cars at 200.00 bucks is what they charge . Most of the racers cant afford this . the Track is a money eating machine . With employee ,insurance ,track prep,gas,electric its tough to do a 25 dollar test because 10 people is only $250.00 dollars i take a tremendous loss . Plus if anyone got hurt or even sick . This is gonna hurt us all . πŸ™ Working on a solution . . Keep faith .

What if we promise not to touch or lick each other? Seems foolproof πŸ˜€

YOU GOT This!!!!!! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

We’re doing a rental next Friday with 40 cars ( which is the max set by the state of NJ for max assembly due to coronavirus) @ $200 a car .

Let's do a track vs track shootout. I've seen Cecil and Mir are doing track rentals of 10 cars plus 1 crew . We could do 5 cars from Beaver and 5 cars from Cecil. Atco vs Mir and winners advance to championship. Maybe 500 per car plus 200 for track rentals. It's better than sitting home

You do what you gotta do we all understand and have your back hugs to you and we all love you

Here is what Cecil is doing...

You have good people around you Greg Miller. Ya got this

Can’t wait until the doors open but I understand why things are happening I will wait patiently

You got this Mike A Mccracken! Whatever you decide to do I know that you have everyone's best interests in your heart. Hugs to you!

I’m in at 200$ a person for a rental.

Cecil was going to do track rentals but the governor of MD shut that down but Mexico is always open lol

As much as I love racing I’m with mike we are all in this together and we don’t even know exactly what this really is yet so, I’m with u mike we all have to proceed with caution

I agree with Andy Cline and we can't wait to race and bring our new racing member with us. We may not be able race each other now but we can still have fun.

I would just run it.......just keep it to Sunday day time racing

I think that 5pm press conference just confirmed it now.

Tyson Harris Mike N Michelle Chance Day Brandon Mosley

A lottery for 50 racers each class only 10 cars each lane stay in your car set the tires in the pitts. Self regulate people to less than 10 per group. We would work together

Got do what you got to do

just gotta do what has to be done Mike...keep up the great job buddy

If this don't let up I was thinking, if allowed small groups, how about groups of 10 cars renting track at $25 per hour for 4 hours, two groups per day, group 1 10-2, next group 3-7, skeleton crew, just TNT. Don't know if this would be cost effective or help you out or not

That's $25 each

Out of our hands now! Sad but true! We will be there when all is clear.

The funny part is, at drag strips we all dont sit around holding hands with each other. You may have a few guys with you, but for the most part its an individual sport with your windows up. πŸ™‚

I seen last night that Cecil county is renting the track out.

For anybody in Central Pa. I have the # for an inspector out of the Latrobe area.

Kevin Yost

It’s alright mike. We all know how hard times can get. It’ll come around and get better. And if ya need help this year I’ll gladly lend a hand when I’m free

This week is a week of hell. I gotta say that as a Track owner I cant be on a lower low. It hurts as we will have to make date changes and cancle some of the races . I want you to know that it's no easy decision or process. I will continue to work hard to give you the best and safest place to race at that I can. No one is more dissapointed than me . But theres nothing more important than life. Racing is up there but life can not be brought back . Plz bear with all the Race Tracks as we have to make decision on what's best for the Tracks survival and the safety of our Racers and fans.
My phone # is
814 329 0810 I'll answer anything I can or try to help with what I can . Plz listen to what we can do to help get this under control as fast as we can . I appericate all the help and support . I will be working harder than ever to do more upgrades and get the barriers as far as I can . We will see what the extent of this is and I'll post more once I know what I can do and what I cant . Luv you all .. Mike

We are behind you boss

Do what ya got to do, real friends and fans will understand just like me

Aye man, I'm sure no one is going to be mad at you. It's totally understandable, hope everything goes well for you and hope to be there this year!

We will get thru this. Drag race life will survive

Behind you all the way, you are doing a great job. Look forward to racing this year!

Hey man you have to do what’s not only best for us and our families, but what’s also the safest thing to do at this point.. all of us racers are behind you 110%

Financially this will hurt a LOT of small businesses.

We are all in this together mike we will get through this together !!!

My new attitude during all that's going on...

No one wants to have there cars worked on to !!!!

Your a good man!

Prayers Brother. I think it is a bunch of BS

We are 100% behind you Mike, no one could have ever anticipated this shit, we will be racing at BSD soon, be safe ,family's health and safety first

With you Mike. Whatever you decide.

Stay positive Mike we'll get through this

Just remember people this is just like the flu the best thing to do is treat it like that and don’t panic

Your racers will stand behind you mike! Its gonna be hard on everyone. If I can suggest anything you should hold low car count, higher entry test sessions. Call 5 or 10 cars to lanes at a time and tell them to roll in lanes ready! People will support. Then the next weekend you make new entrants on the list first and if not filled allow first entrants from previous test session in first etc.

We back you man! It's a bummer to all of us! Just one of those things. We all gotta be proactive and do what's right for all of us. I'm sure this isn't an easy decision, but the right one! Be safe everyone!πŸ‘

Mike, I know it's tough! This reminds me of how the world stopped and changed after 9/ 11/2001.I look forward to the races all winter as all of us do. I will be at your opening day whenever it is.I was still hoping for Apr 4th but this isn't going to be over yet I'm afraid.I don't understand it all or not sure if I believe it all. So I took a nice therapeutic drive in the Mustang today. Didn't cure anything but certainly took my mind off all the crap! So try to take a break here and there- take a rip down the track in something! Not a cure but is a mental break. I will continue my rips in the Mustang! Till this blows over - Take it easy !

You got our support Mike. Hang in there....

Yea it’s ridiculous

Great decision Mike. Unfortunately it's necessary right now. On a good note, I've missed it last couple years due to a scheduling conflict with my annual golf outing (which is also canceled), but the new dates mean I'll be there! Keep up the good work!

For what it’s worth, I have a feeling that lawyers are guiding this more than actual health concerns are. Litigation is expensive and most of us will sue almost anyone

sad

this is all about getting trump out of office

We've got some time yet. Bring back bleach burnouts. The Zoo will show up anyway. Bruce is brewing up an anti body right now !

I got my new suit so when racing i can be protected from the virus

Is the Beaver going to be able to open

Getting trump out not happening. But the news media will blame trump for bring the virus to the United states

All please take heed on what I am about to say... this virus is nothing to take lightly. The reason that all sporting events and large people gathering venues are closing is because this is an airborne virus that can lay on objects for up to 9 days without dying. It’s highly contagious and it’s deadly IF you have a compromised immune system. So wash your hands and sneeze or cough in your sleeves and for the love of please understand the closing or cancelling is seriously necessary. My public service announcement is over.

Where ever you found that I hope you washed your hands on the way out !!!

My guess is that, at least at this early point, rabies is 3-4 times more deadly (in terms of total deaths).

I was down at Gainesville when the governor shut down the race, I have never seen anything like this before

I heard that if you swim in the creek at South Mountain and breathe in the air at Beaver Springs you are immune to the virus. You guys should start a series. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I'll have a high immunity then. Lol

Amem brother

Sitting here at the track still amazed, twenty food stands and not one hungry mouth.

Out of control. I do not understand the Hysteria.

The world is going insane

Should have just hung up this sign. Would have been fine

Good for you Mike don't let left-wing liberal press scare you

I'm too dam dumb to know when I'm sick. Lol

Is racing more important the human lifes, wtf . Smh

Hey Mike are you gonna have to shut down

well keystone nationals were told to stop the show and for everyone to leave... got to love socialism

And it’s mostly out doors with minimal contact I would think! Hopefully it’ll be contained by then.
