Parker Kligerman takes a virtual spin around Atlanta Motor Speedway and joins Steve Letarte and A. J. Allmendinger to preview this weekend's slate of NASCAR races there.

The ARCA Menards Series West on Friday announced the date for its return to racing.

The series, which last competed Feb. 20 in Las Vegas, will hold a doubleheader at the Utah Motorsports Campus in Erda, Utah (30 miles from Salt Lake City) on Friday, June 26. That will be followed by a race at California’s Irwindale Speedway on Saturday, July 4.

The doubleheader on Utah’s 2.2-mile road course will consist of two 30-lap races. The races will be run per state and local guidelines, but in a statement on its website, the track announced it will would offer 500 spectator tickets for the event.

All guests’ temperatures will be taken at the gate, and social-distancing rules will be in force. All UMC staff will wear masks, and public touchpoints will be disinfected on an ongoing basis.

The July 4 race at Irwindale will be a 125-lap event with no pit stops. The race will be limited to essential race personnel only and no spectators per state and local guidelines.

The season-opening winner of the Feb. 20 race in Las Vegas was Sam Mayer.
