ACE Speedway has been in the news lately as they’ve have remained open over the course of the COVID-19 Pandemic according to our Greensboro attorney. Located just outside of Greensboro, NC, the local sheriff has allowed the racetrack to remain open despite the governor’s office saying they are not in compliance with state guidelines for doing so.
A Greensboro attorney at our law firm has been continuing to follow the dispute as it’s played out quite publicly. The NC Department of Health & Human Services has now closed ACE Speedway via an abatement order. The order states that the Speedway’s actions have constituted an imminent hazard for the spread of COVID in North Carolina and this is why it must close according to our attorney in Greensboro.
The order, however, did leave open the possibility that the track could reopen if they came into compliance with the governor’s order. The dilemma here being that the track would be limited to 25 people or less, which is hardly enough for it to be a profitable racetrack. It was reported that there was somewhere between 2,500 and 4,000 spectators in attendance the past three weekends according to a Greensboro attorney at our law firm.
With coronavirus cases in North Carolina on the rise, it’s imperative that we are proactive in slowing or stopping the spread. We will see how this situation develops and whether the governor will loosen restrictions, or ACE Speedway will come into compliance. Our attorneys in Greensboro NC will continue to keep you posted on any and all developments. Have a great day.
