Memorial Day

With the Shelter in Place Order for Illinois still in effect, there is no event at Blackhawk Farms Raceway the weekend of Memorial Day. Perhaps this is the first time the track has been silent on the holiday.

Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day and originated in the years following the Civil War. It became a federal holiday in 1971.

Please take a moment on Monday, May 25 to remember the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.
