Kentucky NASCAR race confirmed for July 12 without fans

Kentucky NASCAR race confirmed for July 12 without fans
Sports
The Xfinity Series’ Kentucky 200 and Alsco 300 will start at 8 p.m. on July 9-10, respectively, and the NASCAR Gander RV and Outdoors Truck Series’ Buckle Up In Your Truck 225 will run on July 11 at 1 p.m.

NASCAR returned to live racing last month following a two-month pause due to COVID-19. Spectators were not allowed at the recent events in Darlington, S.C., Charlotte, N.C., or Bristol, Tenn., or this weekend in Atlanta.

“We are very disappointed that the coronavirus pandemic dictates that we will not have spectators at this year’s races,” Kentucky Speedway executive vice president and general manager Mark Simendinger said in a release.

“We work all year for this weekend and to not be able to share it with fans, especially in the 10th anniversary year of the Quaker State 400, is tough. The health and safety of the public comes first so we hope fans will catch all of the action on FOX or PRN. Plus, I believe Kyle Busch has a score to settle with his brother, Kurt, after last year’s classic finish.”
