Sprint Car driver Lee Grosz has tested positive for the coronavirus. He made the announcement on his team’s Facebook page.
It’s not clear when he may have contracted the virus. His last event was at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa.
He did not start on the August 6th event in Iowa, according to his website.
“Just wanted to inform everyone that I have tested positive for Covid-19,” Grosz said on Facebook. “I started having some symptoms on Wednesday and went in for a test Thursday morning. Just got the call today that my test was positive. Just wanted to let anyone that was in contact with me to watch for symptoms. I have been isolating at home since symptoms surfaced and will continue that through next Saturday, August 29th, as recommended by the medical staff. Fortunately I feel fine so far and hope that continues.
“We are planning on resuming our racing season at Huset’s Speedway with the MSTS 360 [on] September 5th & 6th if we are one of the selected teams. Hope to see everyone when we resume our season.”
His announcement comes just hours after Knoxville Raceway announced that an employee had the coronavirus. The employee may have worked the “One and Only” three day event that took place of the historic Knoxville Nationals last weekend.
