Thompson Speedway Announces New Date For 46th Annual Liquid Death Icebreaker Weekend

(Press Release from Thompson Speedway)


After conversations with all stakeholders, Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park announced on Tuesday the new date for the 46th annual Liquid Death Icebreaker weekend. The prestigious event is now tentatively set to take place May 15-16, including the headlining NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Death To Plastic 150.  

Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, the date is tentative, as the situation is fluid and changes are occurring across the motorsports industry daily. A full schedule for the event will be released once available. 

The original date for the Liquid Death Icebreaker, April 3rd-5th, was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but Thompson Speedway officials were committed to finding the right date and releasing it to the public as quickly as possible. 

“After working with all of the different parties involved, we feel this is the best weekend to run the Icebreaker and kick-off the Thompson racing season,” Terry Eames, the General Manager of Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, said. “Just like the entire racing community, we are disappointed that we can’t start the race season as originally scheduled. However, we will continue to abide by our Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont’s Executive Orders and CDC suggestions during this time. We fully expect to begin the season with the Icebreaker, May 15-16, and look forward to seeing everyone back at the track soon.” 

The health of our valued race teams, fans, staff and customers is paramount during the COVID-19 outbreak. We have cleaned the property thoroughly to do our part to stop the spread of the virus and will continue to do so in the future.

  1. Look, the Fed authorities are saying this might not peak until July/August or later. Asia is looking at rebound spread and cases as they relax their quarantine requirements, a bad thing. As long as the number of cases and deaths is skyrocketing, don’t even think of a race date. We’re just getting started.

    Be safe.

    Moot point as I doubt anything will be back to normal by May. But who’s going to be able to take a day off on Friday after many will probably need to take time of because of corona? Then again if they don’t run the road course on Sunday then the oval will shut down.

  3. 15th / 16th is Friday/Saturday. Is that correct?

  4. Just Me,
    Yes it is.

  5. Thank-You

  6. The President spoke today, he was on all 3 channels, I missed Flipper. So far no good news. Steve Munuchin left the briefing to meet with senators about the much needed stimulus package, that should have been voted through on Monday ( actually Saturday ). All your rich republican senators don’t want to pass this bill that would help most Americans, and possibly help slow this virus down. The President mentioned more legislation aimed at putting money in the hands of us that need it, but don’t hold your breath, as it will have to go through the Senate. Keep strong my friends, with or without the federal government a help we WILL get through this and be stronger from it. Just remember what help the Senate has been, when you vote in November.

  7. The Las Vegas strip has finally closed, should of happened weeks ago. Casinos in Massachusetts closed this past weekend, and I believe Connecticut casinos are also closed. Malls in Holyoke and Springfield have been ordered to close. Cinemark has closed it’s movie theaters nation wide. Now people are starting to take this seriously, although weeks late. Stay safe and use common sense. This will one day pass, and we’ll be stronger because of it.
