Gondik Law Speedway Prepping for Social Distancing Guidelines
It is still recommended that spectators wear face masks and for those who can't make it, a pay-per-view live stream will be available.
SUPERIOR, Wis. – The racing season will finally be underway as the Gondik Law Speedway will kick things off Thursday night with the Minnesota Mod Nationals. But first, the speedway had to prep for a new way to enjoy the races.
Organizers have spent the past 24 hours getting ready to follow social distancing guidelines. That includes marking spots in the stands that are six feet apart, putting up plexiglass around concession stands and making hand sanitizer stations available to fans.
“Even up to the ticket stands, you have what I call “The Valley Fair Effect” where we have six feet across, eight of them, then it goes over and then six feet farther another eight go down. We’re zig-zagging and keeping people six feet apart in lines. And at the concession stand, we have the exact same thing. And at the beer stand, we have the exact same thing. We just want to make it as safe as possible for everybody so that we can continue to do this and have races out here,” board member Joe Stariha said.
It is still recommended that spectators wear face masks and for those who can’t make it, a pay-per-view live stream will be available. The racing gets started at 7 p.m.
