NASCAR’s Coca-Cola 600 Will Race In North Carolina This May – But The Stands Will Be Completely Empty
Chalk up a win for NASCAR fans everywhere – and a subsequent loss for the Coronavirus – as on Tuesday of this week, North Carolina’s Governor announced he will allow the race to take place. There is one small caveat that, in the scheme of things, race fans probably won’t mind: No spectators will be allowed to attend.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
NASCAR has yet to announce the Coca Cola 600 as officially returning to the revised schedule (it was originally slated for May 24th and we have no reason to think that date will change), but the official word is expected at any time as NASCAR firms up rescheduled dates for some already missed races. It’s also worth noting that North Carolina officials also reserved the right to rescind the nod if the health of the state’s residents worsens between now and then.
How do you feel about the news? If you’re a die-hard fan and always try to attend this North Carolina race, where do you see yourself on race day this year? Feel free to join the discussion in the comments!
