Limited Numbers will be Allowed Entrance to NASCAR Cup Series Events at
Homestead-Miami Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway
NASCAR implements plans to reintroduce guests at select NASCAR Cup Series races beginning with the Dixie Vodka 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway on June 14th. The same plans are in place for the GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway on June 21st. Coverage for both events is on FOX, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
NASCAR’s modified event procedures, protocols, and the limited number of attendees were prepared with guidance from public health officials, medical experts, and local, state, and federal officials. All attending guests should expect screening before entering, a requirement to wear a face covering, a mandate for a social distance at six feet, and no access to the infield, among other revised operational protocols. NASCAR plans to continue adapting and improving its procedures to ensure they are effective and can be scaled to support an increasing number of fans in the future.
“We have tremendous respect and appreciation for the responsibility that comes with integrating guests back into our events,” said Daryl Wolfe, Executive Vice President, Chief Operations and Sales Officer, NASCAR. “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 is Inviting Local Military and Fans
NASCAR is continuing a long history of honoring military members by welcoming them as the first guests gaining entrance to a NASCAR Cup Series event since March 8th. Homestead-Miami Speedway is inviting up to 1,000 South Florida service members as honorary guests for the Dixie Vodka 400, representing the Homestead Air Reserve Base and U.S. Southern Command in Doral.
Talladega Superspeedway is allowing up to 5,000 guests in the frontstretch grandstands/towers for the GEICO 500. Also, there are a limited motorhome/fifth-wheel camping spots available outside the track high atop the Alabama Gang Superstretch. Tickets are open exclusively on a first-come, first-serve basis to fans who bought tickets or reserved camping for the originally scheduled GEICO 500 on April 26 and live within a designated proximity to the track.
