40th SMOKIN’ WHEELS WEEKEND MOVED TO 2021

PRESS RELEASE – The 40th Annual APL Smokin’ Wheels Racing weekend that was originally scheduled for April 2020 was put on hold and was previously announced as postponed on March 5th in the first JIC release as one of the affected events due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. 

After much consideration, the Guam Racing Federation and the Japan ATV Association have mutually decided that cancelling the event this year would be the best thing to do. 

The Japan ATV association is responsible for bringing over 100 racers from all over Japan and coordinating logistics of race vehicles, finding available flights or accommodations has been very difficult. Travel restrictions, uncertainty of quarantine procedures when borders also led to the decision to concentrate on the milestone event in 2021.

The 40th Smokin’ Wheels Racing Weekend date has been set for April 16-18, 2021.    

The APL Smokin’ Wheels Racing Weekend is the biggest and longest running motorsports event in the Pacific region.  Since 1978, it has been the premier event for Off-Road Endurance Racing, Off-Road buggies, 4×4 truck challenge, as well as Motocross, ATV racing, Drifting and Drag Racing. Each year over 120 world class racing participants come from all over Japan, the Philippines, New Zealand, and the US mainland to compete.

The Guam Racing Federation is currently planning to host a local scaled event to prepare Team Guam Racers for SW40 before the year ends.

The Guam International Raceway is also reopening its gates to host regularly scheduled races but with limited capacity following PCOR2 Guidelines. At this time we are discouraging non-racers and spectators from attending as we cater to the racers. More information can be found on the www.guamraceway.com website or @guamraceway Instagram and Facebook pages.
