The Shootout 2020 CANCELED, RETURNING IN 2021
In our 22 years of producing over 150 import drag racing events, the decision to cancel this year’s The Shootout just 10 days before the event was the hardest decision we have ever had to make. Racers, fans, sponsors and event producers have all been taxed this year with making the right decision given only limited information. We have all been trying to hit a moving target while blindfolded in the dark when it has come to making decisions. Sometimes we have been lucky enough to get it right and other times we have missed the target completely. Our apologies go out to everyone inconvenienced by our decision. In the end, the health and safety of our community had to take precedence over our desire to produce The Shootout during a pandemic. Both Erie and Marion county have been classified as “red” or Level 3 Public Emergency counties for Covid 19. The Ohio Board of Health has identified these counties as very high exposure and spread with a recommendation to limit activities as much as possible. Ohio has also not changed its stance on allowing spectators at motorsports events. The Ohio state government is also advising a 14-day self-quarantine for travelers from seven states including Mississippi, Arizona, Florida, Alabama, Idaho, Kansas and South Carolina.
The Shootout has become synonymous with the annual gathering of the world’s best DSM, EVO and GT-R enthusiasts. It has been the ultimate opportunity to share the trials and tribulations of our project builds, showcase our shop demo cars and provide our community a chance to celebrate.
To the racers, crew and spectators that already purchased tickets. THANK YOU for your support even with dark clouds in the skies. Refunds will begin processing tonight through theFOAT.com.
With a successful execution of Operation Warp Speed, our country should be vaccinated by January of 2021 and Covid-19 will no longer affect our daily lives. All 2020 sponsors originally backing the event will be back for 2021. For 2021, we shall be returning to the birthplace of the Shootout (Summit Motorsports Park). Thank you for your continued support.

The online ticketing process for crew/spectators is quick, easy and painless. You will purchase your tickets on theFoat.com for the event and you can either print them out of save them to your smartphone where they will be scanned at the gate. For the racers, set aside 20 minutes for the process. The process will involve three stages. Stage 1, you will need to create an account on theFoat.com. Not much information besides your name, email address and a password are really required, but you will need FIVE pics of your car. Once you have created an account, you will then need to fill out a tech car. This is a legally binding real tech card that will take the place of a tech card filled out at a track. Best of all, this gets saved at theFoat.com and can be used for other events. Once you have a tech card completed, you can then purchase a race entry and fill out the form.
