NASCAR to allow “guests” to attend Miami, Talladega Cup races

NASCAR has revealed its plans to reintroduce a limited number of “guests” at selected Cup Series events, starting this weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway, which will be the first time that non-essential personnel will be allowed access to racetracks.

In a statement, NASCAR said: “Modified event procedures, protocols and number of attendees have been finalized with guidance from public health officials, medical experts and local, state and federal officials. All guests in attendance will be screened before entering, required to wear face coverings, mandated to social distance at 6 feet, and will not have access to the infield, among other revised operational protocols. NASCAR will continue to adapt and improve its procedures to ensure they are effective and can be scaled to support an increased number of fans in the future.”

Homestead-Miami Speedway will invite up to 1,000 South Florida service members as honorary guests for this Sunday’s Dixie Vodka 400, representing the Homestead Air Reserve Base and U.S. Southern Command in Doral.

Talladega Superspeedway will allow up to 5,000 guests in the frontstretch grandstands/towers for the GEICO 500 on June 21. In addition, there will be limited motorhome/5th-wheel camping spots available outside the track high atop the Alabama Gang Superstretch. Tickets are open exclusively on a first-come, first-served basis to fans who purchased tickets or reserved camping for the originally scheduled GEICO 500 (April 26) and live within a designated proximity to the track.

Daryl Wolfe, Executive Vice President, Chief Operations and Sales Officer, at NASCAR said: “We have tremendous respect and appreciation for the responsibility that comes with integrating guests back into our events. We believe implementing this methodical process is an important step forward for the sport and the future of live sporting events. The passion and unwavering support of our industry and fans is the reason we race each weekend and we look forward to slowly and responsibly welcoming them back at select events.” 

NASCAR returned to racing in May, following the break since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, holding events without any fans at Darlington, Charlotte, Bristol and Atlanta.
