Topeka (Feb 26, 2019) – In keeping with the old adage, "Nothing is consistent but change," an unanticipated change needs to be made to the 2019 ProSolo® schedule. The June 28-30 Tire Rack Blytheville ProSolo at the Arkansas Aeroplex has been rescheduled and moved to Heartland Park Topeka on July 5-7.
SCCA® received word that Arkansas Aeroplex will no longer be available as a Solo site for the foreseeable future due to an increase in commercial activity at the airport. Several jetliners awaiting renovations are already parked on the north end of the Solo area, with even more on the way. The Club is extremely thankful and grateful to both the Arkansas Region and people of Blytheville for being amazing hosts over the last 10 years. Competitors truly feel like they had become part of the community through working with local charities and conducting Tire Rack Street Survival events, as well as all the ProSolo and Champ Tour events conducted at the venue over the years.
With Blytheville no longer an option, Heartland Motorsports Park stepped up and agreed to host a replacement ProSolo event on a weekend near the original Blytheville date. The new Heartland Park ProSolo will be held on July 5-7 in Topeka, Kansas.
Devon Hilton, the track's general manager, speaking on the opportunity to host the event said, "Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka, Kansas is truly humbled that the Tire Rack SCCA ProSolo's eighth stop of its premier 10-race series will be held at our recently renovated facility. Our paved, 60-acre South Paddock will be more than ample space for the 'side-by-side Christmas Tree' start preceding two identical autocross tracks for individual laps timed down to 1/100th of a second. For racer and crew comforts, HMP offers on-site electrical RV connections, private air-conditioned showers and a vast amount of pit parking. Concessions will be available from gate opening time to the late evening hours as well. We thank Tire Rack SCCA ProSolo for giving HMP this opportunity to host this exciting 2019 stop and we fully commit to provide them an exceptional facility for this event."
ProSolo organizers apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused to vacation time scheduled, and travel plans that may have already been made. From the moment it was learned the Arkansas Aeroplex venue was in jeopardy, every effort was made to quickly find a solution and distribute the news in a timely fashion. We are confident that Heartland Motorsports Park will provide an excellent facility on which to hold the eighth round of the ProSolo series. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
