NASCAR Cup Series Will Race Without Fans At Kentucky Speedway

Ticket credits or full refunds will be offered to fans who purchased tickets.

(Sparta, Ky.) – Due to NASCAR’s revised 2020 schedule, this year’s race at Kentucky Speedway has been rescheduled.

The Quaker State 400 will be held on Sunday, July 12 at 2:30 p.m.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, all July NASCAR races at Kentucky Speedway will take place without spectators.

That includes NASCAR Xfinity Series races and the truck race.

"I would like to thank Governor Andy Beshear, Senior Advisor Rocky Adkins and Health Commissioner Dr. Steven Stack for working in collaboration with NASCAR and Kentucky Speedway to assure this year's race weekend takes place in a way that protects the safety of participants and the community," said Mark Simendinger, executive vice president and general manager, Kentucky Speedway. "We are excited to take our turn as NASCAR leads the sports world back to live events. And what a turn we have by showcasing four races in four days."

Quaker State 400 weekend ticketholders on file may choose to receive an event credit for the full amount paid plus an additional 20 percent. The event credit can be applied toward any admissions, including, but not limited to, grandstand seating, suite and premium tickets, camping, fan hospitality and pit passes. The 120-percent event credit can be used during the remaining 2020 or 2021 seasons for a NASCAR sanctioned event conducted with fans at any Speedway Motorsports owned track, subject to availability.

Another option is a full refund of their purchase price.
