The North American Amateur Drivers Association, one of harness racing's oldest and longest running amateur driving organization, will kick off its 37th season with two trotting events at Yonkers Raceway on Thursday (March 5).

Two six-horse trots will be presented before the first race on the betting card, and they will begin the first of three 10-race series to be presented by the organization for its members during the 2020 racing season.

Current events will be contested on consecutive Thursdays at both Yonkers and Monticello Raceways, with the $15,000 series final slated at Yonkers on May 14.

“We're scheduled to have multiple international contests throughout the season with the first slated for early May against a visiting Italian team from Turino,” noted NAADA vice president Alan Schwartz. “But finalized dates will not be solidified until there is clearance from the current coronavirus circulating throughout a good portion of the globe.”

The series is open to all amateur drivers who become members of the North American Amateur Drivers Association (NAADA).

Last year's December finale was won by Glenferry Dreamer and driver Paul Minore.
