The governor of North Carolina has approved Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway under certain conditions, which is that no fans will be allowed to attend the race and the health condition doesn’t worsen. Gov. Roy Cooper said:
We believe that unless health conditions go down, we believe we can hold the Coca-Cola 600. I think NASCAR will be making that announcement, but that’s what will happen.
NASCAR provided its revised schedule on Monday which expects that races will resume on May 17 at Darlington Raceway and another race on the same track on May 20. Coca-Cola 600 is scheduled to take place on May 24 and the second on May 27.
Marcus Smith, president and CEO of North Carolina-based Speedway Motorsports, expressed his gratefulness to Cooper for collaborating with Charlotte Motor Speedway “to get NASCAR back on track with the Coca-Cola 600 on Memorial Day weekend where it belongs.”
