(Middlebourne, WV) – With Covid-19 locking down much of the country the 2020 season continues under the caution flag as anxious teams and race fans await. A new Presidential three phase plan has rolled out with limited information leaving many to believe that June 1st may be the most realistic date for racing's bigger events to return. With regulations varying from state to state and uncertainty towards a return to normalcy the Renegades of Dirt Modified Tour has been left with no choice but to further postpone its next three events, May 8th – 10th.

However, in this case the delay may be worth waiting for. Officials from the series are excited to announce the make up dates for all three events as June 26th - 28th with an additional schedule modification. Tyler County Speedways Tuesday, June 30th date will be moved to Thursday June 25th. The new slate sets up a monstrous eight nights of racing in ten days paying out over $150,000 dollars.

Therefore, creating the biggest “weeks” in Renegade of Dirt history!

NASCAR veteran and present dirt racing personality Kenny Wallace is committed to race all eight nights with the series.

On Thursday July 2nd the series slides into a first time venue, Princeton Speedway in Southern WV. Friday night July 3rd the series battles it out at Beckley Motorsports Park in Mt. Hope, WV for yet another major payday.

“This week is astounding and history making on so many levels for me and the tour. We're talking major payouts, $3000, $4000, $5000 to win and we are doing that EVERY night for eight nights. No $1,000 or $1,500 to wins... these are high level paying races for modified teams one after another. It's crazy” added Watson.

“We understand it can stretch the teams to the max, eight nights in ten days is a lot. However, the Renegades will answer the call and are up for the challenge, they always do and always are. We've talked to many of them and they are ready. The best part is we will put on some amazing shows in honor of the military” concluded Watson.
