NASCAR Mulling Over Allowing Fans to Attend the Race

Author: Sonali

When almost every sports league is coming up with the proposition to make the games bring to the fields without fans cheering in the background. Such proposals are coming from everywhere and people associated with sports directly or indirectly are sticking up for the proposal. But, one exception surfaced when the news of National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) mulling over allowing fans & supporters to attend the race came up.


The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing abbreviated as NASCAR is popularly known for stock-car racing. It’s a privately owned American operating and sanctioning auto racing company, which was founded in 1948 by Bill France Sr. Since August 2018, Bill France’s son Jim France has served as the CEO of the company. France turned racing into a professional sport by putting together its rules & regulations. It was in 1948 that the first NASCAR race happened in Florida at Daytona Beach. Initially, it was only the Southeast area of the US where NASCAR racing was popular. But, now it has grown to become one of the most favorite things in the sports world and the NASCAR races are broadcasted in more than 100 countries throughout the globe. Many great racers came up in NASCAR history since it came to existence in 1948. One of the wizards of NASCAR racing who is remembered by every generation of the racers is Richard Petty “The King” who won 200 victories through his career, most wins in NASCAR history. Other prominent NASCAR drivers include David Pearson, Darrell Waltrip, Bobby Allison, Cale Yarborough, Dale Earnhardt, and Jeff Gordon.

The Discussion on Allowing Fans in the 2020 NASCAR season.

There is news of Talladega Superspeedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway being the first two tracks to allow the supporters & fans in the stands. There isn’t any confirmation as yet on this, but this has come from many renowned sources. Of course, there are going to be certain precautions & a set of instructions that fans would be required to follow — the first being it would allow only a limited number of supporters in the stadium. NASCAR executives are still contemplating the middle path with this regard. The final decision, and the rulers for allowing the fans are still under study.

The 2020 NASCAR Cup Series has already been in action from May 17. This race is being organized at Darlington Raceway. To date, it’s been happening without fans — the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series is already five Cup races old. Brad Keselowski won his second race in the most recent race at Bristol Motor Speedway. After the collision between Joey Logano collided and Chase Elliott took place, it gave way to the Team Penske driver to grab the trophy. The race will continue with its next schedule slated for June 7 Atlanta Motor Speedway and then at Martinsville Speedway on June 10.

It looks like we can see fans cheering up their favorite racers on the upcoming races slated for June 14 & June 21 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and Talladega Superspeedway respectively. Let’s wait for the final decision from the NASCAR executives!!
