The American Speed Association today announced the cancellation of the July 4 ASA National Tour event at Pikes Peak International Raceway in Fountain, Colo.
The reason given was anticipated event sponsorship did not materialize in time.
“Pikes Peak is one of the finest tracks in the country, and we are extremely disappointed not to be able to race there this season,” stated Steve Dale, ASA president and CEO. “Unfortunately, the sponsorship deals we had been working on didn’t get finalized in time. I certainly hope that we can add Pikes Peak back to the schedule for next year and years to come.”
“We are very saddened that ASA is not in a position to race at PPIR,” said PPIR president Rob Johnson. “We will miss having their series at PPIR but look forward to putting on a great weekend of USAC racing and the largest fireworks display in Southern Colorado.”
The American Speed Association is based in Pendleton, Ind., and has offered stock car racing programs since 1968, including the ASA National Tour, ASA Late Model Series, several regional touring series, and the ASA Member Track programs. For additional information, visit asaracing.com.
