Kansas To Allow Fans For Cup Series Playoff Race

Kansas Speedway in Kansas City will host a limited number of fans for the NASCAR Cup Series Hollywood Casino 400 on Sunday, October 18, in accordance with enhanced safety protocols and procedures.

Grandstand seating and select campgrounds will be available to fans, while infield access will be restricted.

“At Kansas Speedway we have a tradition of fantastic Playoff racing, and what better treat for our fans than to have them witness that in person,” said Kansas Speedway President Pat Warren. “I know the drivers feed off the excitement of having the fans on hand, and we are enthusiastic for the opportunity to welcome them back to the track, offering a safe, healthy environment for everyone.”

The race, which starts at 1:30 pm CT (aired on NBC), is the first in the Round of 8 in the Cup Series Playoffs, and the initial opportunity for a driver to clinch a spot in the coveted Championship 4, which will be held at Phoenix Raceway on November 8.

Fans who have already purchased tickets may be reseated to new locations to allow for social distancing. In addition, all guests will be screened before entry, will be required to wear face coverings at all times, and will be asked to maintain six feet of social distancing throughout the venue.
