Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

GAS CITY, Ind. (WPTA21) - Auto racing activity returned to the Gas City/I-69 Speedway on Sunday.

There was no racing and the grandstand was empty because of pandemic related state regulations, but cars of all classes took to the dirt oval on the east edge of Gas City for the Speedway's Test and Tune practice session, the first action at the track in seven months.

Track access was limited to three persons per car team, and there were three two hour sessions to spread out the participants, who also parked their haulers 20-30 feet apart for social distancing.

Gas City will have its first racing program on June 17th.
