The course in Lexington, OH, put out the following statement:

"Following the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance regarding limiting public gatherings to no more than 50 people, the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course can confirm the Acura Sports Car Challenge at Mid-Ohio will not take place as previously scheduled from May 1-3.

"This delays the start of the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course season opening and will impact the following IMSA-sanctioned series:

• IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship
• IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge
• IMSA Prototype Challenge
• Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama

"Acura, IMSA, and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course are in discussions to identify a new date later in 2020. 

"IMSA and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course will promptly communicate any updates as further information is made available."
