Killington Stage Race over Memorial Day weekend is canceled

“It is with regret that we announce that the three-day 2023 Killington Stage has been canceled,” wrote Gary Kessler, race director for the Killington Stage Race in a press release April 30. “The reasons for the cancellation include a serious family medical issue and an unusually large number of unexpected challenges related to sponsorship, permitting, race officials, police coverage and neutral support. The totality of the challenges led to the conclusion that we would not be able to put on the same high-quality event that racers have come to expect at the KSR and determined it would be best to cancel the event for this year.”

Kessler said he is working to bring the race back for 2024 as it is a major event on the North American road racing schedule. 

Since the return of the race in 2010 it has become an important early season economic driver for the Killington area typically bringing 700-1,000 people to the area over Memorial Day weekend.
