NASCAR announced to its followers on Tuesday that it would be allowing up to 5,000 fans to be in attendance for its June 21st Cup race, previously scheduled for April 26th, at Talladega Superspeedway.
The hosting venue also came out and noted that there would be a few limited motor home spots available for those who secured them early enough, located along the backstretch of the track.
Tickets for the Grandstand will be set at $40 each while Tower tickets are priced at $50 and there will be no special pricing for kids ages 12 and under.
No more than a group of 6 will be allowed to be seated next to or in proximity of one another, as has been standard for most group gatherings during this time, limiting most groups to large families at best.
All tickets will be delivered via Tickets @ Home and of course be digital, which will force and allow fans to go through no touch entry. Sorry, baby boomers who love paper.
Daryl Wolfe, the executive vice president of NASCAR, said that the 5,000 person limit was determined based upon “what do we feel like is the right stair-step approach.” as well as “what they were comfortable with as well.” (They being medical experts.)
“You mix all that together, assess what the right approach is and that’s the number we landed on.”
Oh and by the way, NASCAR is also making news for other reasons today…
