NASCAR Ends Denial of COVID-19 Pandemic

NASCAR has finally decided to postpone the race events at Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend and Homestead-Miami Speedway next weekend. This follows days of maneuvering to keep the events going and salvage some revenue from merchandising sales and TV rights.

“We believe this decision is in the best interest of the safety and well-being of our fans, competitors, officials and everyone associated with our sport,” said a NSACAR statement just issued late this morning. “We will continue to monitor this dynamic situation as we assess future race events.”
