UPDATE: It’s on folks! Matt and June and the gang at Rocky Mountain Race Week have come to the rescue and are going to be holding Rocky Mountain Race Week 2.0 in September during the time that should have been Hot Rod Drag Week. With Drag Week being cancelled, Matt immediately started looking for tracks willing to open up and has spent the last few days getting everything set and ready to rock. Thanks to some great tracks, great work by good people, and plenty of good luck there is officially going to be a Rocky Mountain Race Week 2.0 (The Cancelled Drag Week Edition)!
Here is the preliminary information from Matt’s Facebook Post! It will be held September 13-17 and will have the following schedule.
Yep, the sad news that Drag Week 2020 was cancelled happened a few days ago, and it makes us sad but is not surprising. With one of the tracks closing for the year weeks ago, and at least one other track wanting to get out of holding the event, there wasn’t much hope on our end that this thing was actually going to happen. But thinking it would be cancelled and it actually getting cancelled are two different things and so it sucks for everyone that counts on this event each and every year. In this video you’ll see Alex and Dennis Taylor talking about the event, the cancellation, and hinting at something else that is maybe possibly kinda in the works. Trust me, that isn’t a click bait routing any more than the video title is. There is something in the works to try and salvage the time off and everything else for Drag Week Racers. So don’t cancel the vacation plans yet. The route won’t be the same, but the time frame would be, so keep those dates open!
I wish we could give you all the details and info right now, but things are still in the works and still not confirmed. But know that there is a promoter out there working to make this a reality for everyone.
Until we have 100% confirmation we won’t say anything more. But rest assured that when it is 100% we will tell the world.
