Indianapolis Motor Speedway announced Thursday afternoon that due to COVID-19, there will be no spectators allowed at the track for this year’s Brickyard 400 or Indy Grand Prix.
IMS President sent out a letter to fans this morning stating the issues with allowing fans into the track in July. He did state that they are still planning for “fans” to be at the Indy 500 in August though. Below is the letter Boles sent out. Attendance was already low at previous Brickyard 400 races and IMS moved the race this year from August to the July 4th holiday in hopes of getting more fans. Unfortunately, not this year. There is word that NASCAR may be moving the race again in 2021 to a new slot.
July 4th Weekend Update from #IMS:
The @BigMachine Hand Sanitizer 400 at the Brickyard and the GMR Grand Prix will run without spectators in the stands, following extensive consultation with local and state officials.
