Las Vegas Motor Speedway proposes limited fan attendance at Las Vega
NASCAR is set to return to Las Vegas Motor Speedway from March 5th to the 7th and while safety is a concern in this new era, the facility has applied for a limited capacity permit. This news comes only days after Governor, Mike Sisolack pushed to ease restrictions in the state. Track president Chris Powell's proposed plan would see the track at 20% capacity, which would amount to around 20,000 fans.
"We’ll go by all of the safety protocols that are called for by our state and local health officials including, but certainly not limited to, but including that everyone will be required to wear a face covering, we will socially distance every group outside of four people from one family will be distanced from a seating standpoint from another group and we’ll also be doing a lot of cleaning throughout the course of the weekend, hand sanitizer and all of those kinds of things," Powell said.
