Lee, N.H. (August 7, 2020) – With the coronavirus reeking havoc everywhere, auto racing certainly has not escaped being affected. With many states and Canada facing strict guidelines on travel etc., a smaller than usual contingent of ISMA supermodified competitors were able to be at Lee USA Speedway on Friday night, August 7 for the Ollie Silva Memorial 75.
For most in the field, it was the first race of this strange season. But, the 50% fan turnout saw an action-packed race as they practiced the guidelines put in place. And, they seemed extremely enthusiastic with the results.
