You guys think we’ll have a derby season?? It’s not looking good! IMO, I think every big money event from now until at the earliest late June will be postponed or possibly even cancelled. I’m hope I’m wrong!!!
honestly I think there will be zero shows this year. like you said ,hope we are both wrong. but... Ohio cases are raising 200 plus a day. I will keep building for a few shows we plan to run in june/sept and whatever in-between.

Buddy & I was just talking about this today. We are gonna build one car each for this year we won't plan to run till atleast July but that's 3 shows back to back and then probably start on a hot rod or rat rod so we have something to keep us busy besides house hold up keep.

I'm signed up for Metal Mayhem, and i'm actually considering asking for a refund for my spot because of all this crap going on. United States is now the #1 country in the world for the most cases of this virus, and it doesn't look like it's going to be slowing down anytime soon...

Events take months, sometimes years of preparation. If you were to attempt to continue to arrange and event right now, it would be extremely challenging due to unknowns. Just one missing critical piece of many may make the event a no go. Unfortunately, this isn't just a demolition derby we are talking about. It's for all events, weddings, concerts, fairs, guided trips, fundraisers. I suspect for every week this continues, 1 month of normal drops off.
I would be stripping cars, but not building to anticipated rules for an event that may not happen.
I'm building as usual,but my shows are in July and aug. In New York where I am there at county fairs so I run at least 10 times in 2 months. I can't see the country shut down for much more than April, financially the country can't recover if they don't get up and running.
