“The end of the 2020 race season will bring some changes for me,” Thorson said in a Facebook post. “Effective immediately, I have decided to part ways with Hayward Motorsports. Even with COVID-19 cutting our season short, we still managed to have a good season in the Oilfire Whiskey/Hayward 19. While I appreciate the opportunity given to me by Hayward Motorsports, I’ve decided that my racing career needs to head in a new direction.

“I will pursue other options to finish out 2020 and for the 2021 season.”

According to his website, he is supposed to compete in a USAC event on Oct. 9th in Wayne City, Illinois. The following night, he’s supposed to compete in another USAC event on Oct. 10th.

In Nov., he has a full slate of events, all USAC events in either Arizona or California. He’s scheduled to compete at back-to-back events in San Tan Valley, Ariz. On Nov. 13th and Nov. 14th.

Several days later, he’s slated to compete in Bakersfield, Calif. on Nov. 17th. Then, Nov. 19-21st, he’ll be competing in Placerville, Calif.

He’ll close out Nov. with a USAC event in Ventura, Calif. on Nov. 26th.

Besides driving a Sprint Car, he’s also competed in NASCAR, as he made 11 appearances in the Truck Series in 2018. He’s made three appearances in the ARCA Menards Series in 2016 and 2017, while making one start in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East in 2018.

In 2016, he also made one start in the CARS Super Late Model Tour.
