DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Officials at Daytona Int’l Speedway announced Tuesday a plan to allow 5,000 fans into the venue for the IMSA WeatherTech 240 At Daytona on Saturday, July 4.

Working closely with public health officials and local, state and federal authorities on amended safety protocols and procedures, the speedway will offer 5,000 fans a chance to attend the IMSA WeatherTech 240 At Daytona with available seating in  the frontstretch grandstands, as well as a limited number of infield camping guests. All must be Florida residents, and will adhere to social distancing guidelines.

This IMSA WeatherTech 240 At Daytona, part of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, will be showcased on the 3.56-mile high-banked tri-oval/infield road course. The highly anticipated event will take the green flag at 6:05 pm ET on Independence Day and end under the lights. The limited camping spots will be located in NASCAR’s turns one and two areas of the infield (GEICO Grounds Yellow RV and Yellow Premium RV), near the Carousel Turn. Those fans will be required to watch the race from their RV site.
