It is with great sadness that we must inform you of the difficult decision that has been made to postpone this year’s Hot August Nights event until 2021.
This decision was not made lightly. Many hours were spent doing our due diligence considering all options and recommendations by the CDC, State of Nevada, our local government and health officials. We hoped conditions would have improved to allow community special events, but with the requirements that are being mandated we find they are not realistic for an event the magnitude of Hot August Nights.
We strongly feel our number one priority for Hot August Night is the safety and well-being of our car participants and highly dedicated volunteer members. In good conscious we cannot ask them nor our vendors, staff, guests and the community to subject themselves to any risk. With the restrictions we are faced with right now, we know we would not be able to produce a high quality event that Hot August Nights is recognized for. Some of our events would have to be canceled due to crowd restrictions significantly impacting the overall experience and excellence of Hot August Nights.
Please understand that this decision was difficult and heartbreaking. However, due to the uncertainty of these unprecedented times we feel it is the responsible and best decision for all involved.
Although Hot August Nights 34th annual event has been postponed, Motorsport Auction Group (MAG Auctions) is not. MAG Auctions will continue to plan for their classic car auction August 7 – 8, 2020. For more information on MAG Auctions, visit www.motorsportauctiongroup.com .
