NASCAR racing will be go as scheduled this weekend at the Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky, but there will be no fans permitted to any of the races as NASCAR continues to deal with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

But although no spectators will be allowed inside the venue, all five scheduled races will be broadcast live on FS1 as well as either the Performance Racing Network, the Motorsports Racing Network, or Sirius XM NASCAR Radio.

“We are very disappointed that the coronavirus pandemic dictates that we will not have spectators at this year’s races,” said Mark Simendinger, executive vice president and general manager, Kentucky Speedway. “We work all year for this weekend and to not be able to share it with fans, especially in the 10th anniversary year of the Quaker State 400, is tough. The health and safety of the public comes first so we hope fans will catch all of the action on FOX or PRN. Plus, I believe Kyle Busch has a score to settle with his brother, Kurt, after last year’s classic finish.”

Quaker State 400 weekend ticketholders on file may choose to receive an event credit for the full amount paid plus an additional 20 percent, or choose to receive a full refund of their purchase price. Fans are advised to keep their current tickets and asked to complete an exchange request form at www.kentuckyspeedway.com to start the process.
