However, the track has not mentioned the number of fans that will be present in the race scheduled for February 14.
Additionally, fans who have already bought the tickets will be re-seated so as to follow the guidelines of social distancing.
Other requirements include screening before entering the venue, mandatory face coverings and a distance of 6 feet to be maintained for social distancing.
The track president Chip Wale said in a statement:
“The Daytona 500 is one of the greatest spectacles in all of sports, and fans from all over the world converge in Daytona Beach to be a part of motorsport’s biggest day.
“While we won’t be able to have a capacity crowd here in February, we are excited that we can host the DAYTONA 500 with those in attendance, as well as for the millions who will tune in live on FOX.
“The Great American Race will once again have the aura and atmosphere that fans have come to know and love. From the pageantry of our pre-race festivities to the rumble of 40 engines roaring around the high banks, it’s the biggest stage in motorsports.”
The fans at track and at home create the energy of The Great American Race.
