Columbus, OH - The 2020 annual meeting of the harness racing Grand Circuit officers and stewards took place via a video conference on Wednesday (Dec. 2). Most of the Grand Circuit tracks were represented at this video conference.

John Campbell, president of the Grand Circuit, conducted the meeting and went through the events for the 2020 racing season, the financials and asking for approval of the finance report submitted by Paul Ramlow, the Grand Circuit's treasurer.

Campbell asked for a discussion and a vote on his thoughts to have an Executive Committee formed, made up of the Grand Circuit officers and any other Grand Circuit steward that would want to be a part of this new committee. This committee would be able to make decisions regarding any situation that could come up for the Grand Circuit and would be able to be handled more efficiently. The Executive Committee idea was approved and the members of the new committee are as follows: John Campbell, Carol Cramer, Scott McKelvie, Paul Ramlow and Nick Salvi.

Discussion ensued regarding the cancellation of the 2021 USHWA Dan Patch Awards Dinner and our Grand Circuit presentations of awards to the year-end champion driver, trainer and owner. Campbell suggested those awards could be presented to the 2020 winners during a Grand Circuit night at The Meadowlands next season. A motion was presented and passed.

The 2020 Grand Circuit champions were Yannick Gingras (driver), Nancy Takter (trainer) and Burke Racing Stable (owner).

The 2021 Grand Circuit schedule of racing dates will be released in January.
