Shortly after the Gatornationals, the Salinas family contracted COVID-19 and suffered many of the typical symptoms. Although they have begun to feel better and have returned to work, the family decided to stay home another weekend before continuing their race season. They hope the extra weekend of recovery will ensure they are well rested and mentally prepared for the busy race schedule in the upcoming months. With many back-to-back events scheduled this summer, Scrappers Racing remains concerned about the wellbeing of all staff, crew, and fans in the NHRA.
“We’re doing okay, we just aren’t 100% yet,” Mike Salinas reported. Scrappers Racing plans to return to the NHRA circuit at the next event, Lucas Oil NHRA Southern Nationals, in Atlanta, Georgia (April 30- May 2)
