Rescheduled Liquid Death Icebreaker Weekend At Thompson Speedway Postponed

On April 10 officials from Thompson Speedway announced they would likely be forced to postpone for a second time the running of the 46th Annual Liquid Death Icebreaker weekend. 

On Friday management of the track made that decision official. 

The event was originally scheduled to take April 4-5, before the COVID-19 global pandemic forced a shutdown of all live sports across the country. 

The event was rescheduled to May 15-16, but now Thompson Speedway officials are abandoning that plan.  

A statement from Thompson Speedway management Friday read: โ€œThompson Speedway Motorsports Park announced on Friday that the 46th annual Liquid Death Icebreaker, originally rescheduled for May 15-16, will not happen during that weekend. We continue to work with local and public health officials during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are in constant communication with NASCAR about rescheduling the event and will have further updates when available.โ€ 

The Liquid Death Icebreaker weekend was scheduled to include a 150-lap NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour event. 

Also on Friday it was announced by NASCAR that the Whelen Modified Tour event at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway was being postponed. No makeup date was announced. 

Stafford Motor Speedway is still tentatively scheduled to open its season with a Friday night show on May 22. The track has tentatively rescheduled the NAPA Spring Sizzler weekend to May 30-31. That event, which also includes the Whelen Modified Tour NAPA Spring Sizzler 200, was originally scheduled to take place April 25-26.ย

  1. At least they’re starting to have a conversation now in pro sports on what games would look like if they played them. No crowds at first then maybe highly dispersed crowds and masks mandatory. Taking temperatures to get in mandatory. Teams staying at hotels for periods of time. Limited numbers of games clumped together. If the players could take all the hoops they’d have to jump through it actually would be a step forward to normalcy even thought it seems draconian now.
    Local racing, I just don’t know. It is after all entertainment and not essential in any sense except to the tracks and businesses that support the sport that on the whole are not big job producers. Things can change quickly and it is only April after all. Mid summer may look considerably less risky.
    Ironic that it is the one sport where more money would be saved by not racing.

  2. Wait a second, the all powerful Trump said that he was commanding the social mobility and public safety requirements to stop ๐Ÿ›‘ on May 1.

    What’s going on here?

    Wait, Trump also said he was commanding the social mobility and public safety requirements to stop on Easter. That didn’t happen. I wonder ๐Ÿค” why.

    Hey, is this guy Trump some kind of crackpot?

  3. The crackhead on the corner is smarter than Trump…no really he is…he graduated from MIT in the top 1%. Then he decided to chase the dragon. But he’s still smarter than any Trump.

  4. Trump is going to get someone killed with his tweets to liberate Michigan, Minnesota and Virginia. I say Liberate America…Dump Trump!!!

  5. Rob you have my vote
