NASCAR To Race Next Two Weekends Without Fans Because Of Coronavirus (Update)


UPDATE NASCAR, which like IndyCar had originally planned to race this weekend without fans in attendance, has also now postponed its events in Atlanta, as well as the following week in Homestead.

With the NASCAR schedule so full, it's doubtful those events will be rescheduled.

03/13/20 NASCAR announced Thursday afternoon that race events this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway and next weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway will be held, but without fans in attendance because of the coronavirus pandemic.

These events, NASCAR said in a statement, “will be restricted to competitors, crews, officials and other necessary personnel to conduct the race." NASCAR added it would work with public health officials to determine scheduling beyond those two events.

Atlanta Motor Speedway later announced that ticket holders on file for events will receive a full credit towards speedway purchases for grandstand seating, infield access, camping, fan hospitality and pit passes. The offer is good for 2020 and 2021 events at any Speedway Motorsports Inc. facility.
