NC Speedway defies Phase 2 restrictions, calls Saturday's race a 'peaceful protest'


Elon, NC |  Earlier this week, Governor Roy Cooper urged Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson to enforce his executive order in phase 2, which said no more than 25 people can gather. However, reports say roughly 2,000 patrons filtered into the stands for a race Saturday night at Ace Speedway.

A sign outside the Ace Speedway track read: This event is held in PEACEFUL Protest for Injustice and Inequality Everywhere." 

The Alamance County Sheriff's Office said it is "evaluating the events."
