The Menards NHRA Heartland Nationals at Heartland Motorsports Park, scheduled for Aug. 21-23 in Topeka, Kansas, has been postponed until the fall for pandemic-related reasons, the NHRA announced. A rescheduled date has not been determined.
NHRA and Heartland Motorsports Park are working together with the Shawnee County Health Department to develop a plan to reschedule the event, the sanctioning body said.
“Topeka is fortunate to have a county health department that sincerely cares about public safety and also understands the economic impact of one of Kansas’ largest events,” said Heartland Motorsports Park owner Chris Payne. “It is after many conversations, the decision was made to postpone the event to the fall. Heartland Motorsport Park holds many milestone records. The cooler fall weather will not only be more comfortable for the spectators, but also brings favorable conditions, great racing, camping, and the chance of setting new records.”
