WC Vision met with COTA representatives on Monday morning, which have indicated that all systems are still go for the event, which will include a triple-header to close out the SprintX season, as well as GTS and TC Sprint races.

The Category 4 Hurricane made landfall on Friday, causing mass flooding and significant damage to the state, which has been declared a state of emergency in many counties.

It’s understood Austin has received limited damage, and although still significant amounts of rain, local businesses and the airport remain open.
