2020 Open-Wheels 500

Race Awards

Due to complications stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no race purse or cash prizes awarded at the 2020 Open-Wheels 500 presented by Mitchell Transmissions. Open-Wheels Motorsports Sanctioning does not find it ethical to pursue any funding outside of the monies required to offset operational expenses during the month of November, thus all awards shown below will not carry a cash value and there will not be a race purse in 2020.

The race winner will still receive the traditional milk bottle with the race logo and year inscribed on the face, as well as a tribute on a singular trophy that Open-Wheels Motorsports Sanctioning is planning for the future. Stay tuned!
