Dear NASA Texas Family,
We hope that this message finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy.
These are unique times that will require sacrifices and we will all suffer to some extent. We hope that the best parts of our racing family and humanity show through.
Given the most current information put forth by the CDC, WHO, and Federal government, NASA Texas and Eagles Canyon have decided to postpone the upcoming Return to Eagles Canyon event originally scheduled for April 3-5, 2020. We want to get back to hosting events as soon as practical, but this date is too close to government mandated shutdowns to keep it on the calendar. With such a fluid situation, we tentatively plan to announce the updated date for Eagles Canyon, as well as any other adjusted dates in an update on or before May 1st. We ask that you please stay understanding of the fluidity of the situation. As things often change hourly, we will do our best to keep everybody informed through our email newsletter and social media channels.
We know this is disappointing to all. This public health situation is detrimental to our industry as we focus on staying safe and healthy.
As with many Americans, the negative financial impact this crisis will have on ECR as well as NASA Texas cannot be understated. NASA Texas is small business, and the timing of this pandemic is occurring at peak time of our racing season here in Texas.
Many have asked about the refund policy. We have never been through a global pandemic but have created a new policy we feel is fair to our members. The following applies to the upcoming ECR event and any other event that should need to be cancelled or postponed because of the COVID-19 situation.
At present each participant has a 100% credit for entry fees paid and we are extending out the use of credits from the Return to Eagles Canyon event until December 31, 2021. As normal, these credits can be used for any NASA Texas hosted event. (Credits from NASA Texas hosted events do not apply to crossover events like the October NOLA event.)
Any person requesting a refund will be issued a 100% refund less $50 which helps us cover credit card processing fees. However, a $50 coupon code will be issued which may be used at any NASA Texas hosted event through the end of the 2021 season.
Please note, NASA Texas DOES plan to host the rest of our 2020 schedule as local and federal authorities allow and advise as safe. We are in close contact with track management and we will continue to monitor the evolution of the COVID-19 regulations and rules laid down by Federal Governments/State Governments and the CDC.
We are all chomping at the bit to get our need for speed fulfilled in the usual fun, safe, family friendly environment that is a NASA event. We hope to see you at the track much sooner than later!!
Stay safe and healthy,
Will Faules and always amazing NASA Texas Team
