The Road Racing Drivers Club has postponed its annual dinner, this time to honor four-time Indianapolis 500 champion Rick Mears, due to local indoor COVID restrictions. The event had been scheduled for September 23.
Mears was originally set to be honored in April 2020, but that was delayed among the first wave of events to be affected by the pandemic. The RRDC is now hoping to salute the four-time Indy winner next April. Checks sent as payment for tickets to this year’s dinner have not been processed.
