After NASCAR became the first major sports to host fans with the race at Homestead-Miami Speedway on June 14, the All-Star Race on July 15 will allow up to 30,000 race fans in the stands.
NASCAR has taken a positive step with bringing fans back in the stands as the race at Homestead-Miami Speedway on June 14 had 1,000 fans. Furthermore, the upcoming race at Talladega Superspeedway on June 21 will have 5,000 fans, living within 150 miles of the track.
The number is set for a major increase with the All-Star Race on July 15, according to Motorsport.com. The race is scheduled to be hosted by Bristol Motor Speedway.
Speaking to NASCAR Race Hub Marcus Smith, Speedway Motorsports President and CEO, said:
“Our passion is to entertain people, and we’re going to be able to entertain fans at Bristol Motor Speedway.
“This will be the biggest event with spectators, really since the (COVID-19) pandemic started. The state of Tennessee has given us approval to host up to 30,000 NASCAR fans at this year’s NASCAR All-Star Race. We are thrilled and for us, it’s all about us bringing fun and building memories that last a life time, and we think you can do it at Bristol.”
