Wright added, “We will be operating under Covid-19 guidelines again in Mid-Ohio. Our staff and competitors did a great job adhering to the rules in Pittsburgh, and I am expecting nothing less in Ohio.The on-track action was some of the best that we have seen in our series, and we saw new and returning drivers to the FRP program. We will continue to evolve and shape the program to attract as many new racers as possible and look forward to the rest of 2020 and onwards into 2021.”
