The Daytona International Speedway has dropped all Covid-related restrictions for its Coke Zero Sugar 400 race on Aug. 28. Fans at the race, formerly known as the Firecracker 400, will be allowed access to the infield and pit row areas as well as all seats in the front-stretch grandstands.
The stock car race in Daytona Beach will serve as the Nascar Cup Series' regular season finale for the second year in a row.
During the pandemic, the speedway has reduced capacity, hosting about 25,000 race fans at last year's Coke Zero Sugar 400 race despite grandstand seating for over 100,000 people. The venue's signature Daytona 500 race in February was limited to 30% capacity.
