Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) will be able to host 12,500 fans or about 15% of the total capacity at its upcoming NASCAR events, not the 16,000 that was expected.

Under current recommendation from the Southern Nevada Health District, which the Nevada Department of Business and Industry has signed off upon, we are capped at 12,500 attendees including suite guests, which is approximately 15 percent of total capacity,” said LVMS President Chris Powell.
