Pocono received some very good news on Monday that Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolff said that outdoor events would be able to hold 50% capacity beginning on April 4. The doubleheader weekend at the Pocono Raceway is set for the June 25-27, so with that still being further in advance, it appears Pocono will be able to host a very large crowd in three months.
Most races right now are between 20-30% capacity limits right now, which is a huge step. Instead of moving backwards like we were around this point last year, with fear that life may never look the same, we’re moving forwards with more and more fans being welcomed back as time goes on.
Here’s the plans for each race starting with this weekend.
- Atlanta – Tickets are sold out.
- Bristol – Tickers are sold out.
- Martinsville – Current max ix 1k but per release, “if current trends continue, then venues may be able to oprate at 30% capacity with no cap on the number of people permitted to attend starting in April.” Tickets if extended past 1k would be available here
- Richmond – Same as above since in the same state. Tickets if they become available past 1k are here
- Talladega – No announcement yet on fans for 2021, but both races held fans last year. Tickets here
- Kansas – No announcement yet on fans for 2021 either, but fans held in October and tickets on sale already here
- Darlington – Fans allowed for the May race now. Tickets here
- Dover – Sporting venues limited to 250 people. This is the 1st race that could be affected.
- COTA – No official announcement yet on how many fans, but tickets are on sale here
- Charlotte – 30% capacity allowed. Tickets here
- Sonoma – Their area just moved to a red tier meaning 25% capacity can start on April 1.
- Texas – Same deal as COTA, but with Texas fully open again, I’d suspect the race in June to have a large capacity. Tickets here
