A limited number of fans will be able to attend the Aug. 16 NASCAR Cup and Truck Series races on the Daytona International Speedway road course and tickets are on sale, the track announced Tuesday.
The limited number of fans for the doubleheader is in accordance with public health officials and local, state and federal authorities on amended safety protocols and procedures that will provide a safe experience for all fans in attendance.
Frontstretch seating is available, plus there are options for infield camping guests.
Tickets also remain for the Aug. 29 Coke Zero Sugar 400 on the 2.5-mile tri-oval, which will serve as the Cup Series’ regular season finale for the first time. Tickets also start at $49 for adults and $10 for kids 12 and under. Limited infield camping is also available.
To ensure social distancing between groups, fans who have already purchased tickets to the event have been reseated in comparable new locations, and new, lower ticket pricing has been applied.
