(Woodhull, NY) The 2020 Woodhull Raceway Banquet, which flew under the radar because of COVID was such a huge success that second year track owners, Terry and Nikki Brewer will duplicate the event this season by once again hosting the annual affair right at the track.
“Even with an abbreviated schedule last season which included no fans allowed in the stands due to the pandemic we still put on a banquet for the drivers last year, claimed the Brewer’s. It was much easier to just put up a huge tent and do it right at the track where we had plenty of parking, restrooms, and kitchen facilities. It was a gorgeous fall afternoon, and we had a great turnout of drivers, car owners, crew members, sponsors and employees. With all the regulations last year it would have been impossible to have an indoor event, so we did the next best thing.”
With the success of last year’s Woodhull Raceway Awards Banquet and the potential threat of more NYS and Federal regulations coming in the next few months regarding indoor functions, masks and vaccinations, the track management decided to mirror last year’s event, do it in early October when the weather is generally favorable and put the thing into the books before bad weather and any further mandates set in.
“By handling the banquet in this fashion, we can get the awards and money to the drivers in a timely manner because we’re sure they can use the added funding heading into the off season.” That once again according to the Brewer’s.
The Woodhull Raceway 2021 Awards Banquet will be held at the facility on CR 102 with a social gathering at 11:00am followed by a mouthwatering buffet meal at noon catered by the Nikk L Brew Restaurant of Canisteo, NY. The awards will immediately follow. All tents, tables and chairs to be supplied by Rent a Tent in Mansfield, Pa. one of the tracks marketing partners.
Tickets are priced very reasonably at $20/person with reservations accepted thru the tracks Facebook account. Payment for all tickets will be due upon arrival at the track the day of the banquet.
Respectable attire is requested.
