Several race tracks are gearing up to stage the resumption of the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series as soon as next month (May) regardless of current COVID-19 lockdowns.
The NASCAR campaign has been on hold since early March race at Phoenix Raceway due to the Coronavirus outbreak, with the 8-9 May races at Martinsville in Virginia hoped to be the point when the season could resume.
Although, NASCAR confirmed just last week that this race has also been postponed after the state of Virginia implemented further social distancing measures to ease the spread of the deadly virus.
NASCAR recently stated they were analyzing a “potential return to racing without fans in attendance in May” at a yet-to-be-stated track.
This could potentially be the 24 May event at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
This past week, five Republican senators have lobbied North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper to amend his executive order to allow a race behind closed doors at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
