Comments

  1. Not surprising. Many people are needed to put a race on, still enough to be considered a crowd.

    Good move, thank you NASCAR for having the health and safety take priority over economics.

  2. No racing. Good move by NASCAR. It takes allot of people to have 1 race, nevermind 3. Safety first. Hopefully we get this virus under control soon.
