In a joint statement, Jerry Kunzman, owner of the Northern California Region of the National Auto Sport Association, [NASA] and Thunderhill Park President and CEO, David Vodden, announced today that this years running of the 25 Hours of Thunderhill endurance auto race scheduled for December 5th and 6th, would not take place due to impacts from the COVID virus pandemic. The internationally recognized endurance road race will resume in December of 2021.

“We are sad to report that this spectacular road racing event conducted under the Nor Cal NASA banner is yet another victim of the COVID Virus and the difficulties that it imposes on society,” Director Kunzman said. “We are clearly in favor of all the best behaviors to reduce and end the health impacts of the COVID virus. We are also acutely aware of the difficulties that uncertainty surrounding the current state of the nation relative to the virus places on teams that may want to enter.” By cancelling now, hopefully those teams and individuals that would have done all that it takes to compete in the world’s longest endurance auto race, will be spared cost in time and dollars by not doing so for 2020. “I look forward to the 2021 edition of the “25” for all those around the globe who have come to enjoy and value this very special automobile race,” Kunzman said.

“We share the distress that arises from losing the “25” for 2020,” said track CEO, David Vodden, “I know that it is the right decision on all fronts.” “The ever-increasing grass-roots awareness of this race and the many unique features it offers to the racing community will be enhanced for 2021 as we continue to grow this event into motor-racing version of burning man,” Vodden added.
