Bristol Motor Speedway officials announced Tuesday the Pinty’s U.S. Short Track Nationals presented by Vore’s Welding and Steel, one of the premier short track stock car races in the country, has been rescheduled to September 26 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“With all that has transpired over the past couple of weeks, we felt it was best to move this event to an open date later in the year,” said Jerry Caldwell, executive vice president and general manager of Bristol Motor Speedway. “We know how important this event is to the rising stars who compete in these series and we wanted to make sure they have plenty of time to adjust their schedules for the fall.”

The one-day show, with open practice the day before, will showcase four exciting classes headlined by the powerful Super Late Models. The event will also feature race action for Pro Late Models, Street Stocks and Compacts. The format allows competitors open practice opportunities on Friday, followed by a one-day race format filled with practice, qualifying and racing on Saturday.
