DARLINGTON, S.C. – Darlington Raceway officials have announced the venue will play host to a limited number of fans during the NASCAR Cup Series Southern 500 on Sept. 6.
The Southern 500 is the first race in the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs.
“The Southern 500 is a time-honored tradition in motorsports, so we look forward to creating new NASCAR Cup Series Playoff memories with fans returning to Darlington Raceway,” said Darlington President Kerry Tharp. “After successfully hosting the sport’s return to competition in May, the track Too Tough To Tame will be ready to welcome fans back for a safe race experience.”
A limited, reduced number of fans will be in attendance for the Southern 500 in accordance with public health officials and local, state and federal authorities as well as related safety protocols and procedures.
To ensure social distancing between groups, fans who have already purchased tickets to the Southern 500 will be reseated in new locations, as comparable as possible to original seats, with new, lower ticket pricing applied.
All guests will be screened before entering the facility, required to wear face coverings and maintain six-feet of social distancing throughout the venue.
Additional information on camping will be made available to fans in the near future.
