NASCAR Bans Fans at Races

Just a day after insisting that it would hold racing as usual with slight tweaks to protect the drivers from COVID-19, NASCAR has partially admitted  that more steps are necessary to acknowledge the growing crisis and public health threat.

“At this time, NASCAR will hold its race events at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway without fans in attendance. These events will be restricted to competitors, crews, officials and other necessary personnel to conduct the race. We will work with public health officials as we determine future scheduling beyond these events,” it just said in a terse statement.It also banned photographers in what we predict will be a futile attempt to prevent empty stand photos from going viral.
