VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. — Daytona International Speedway is ready to welcome fans back in a big way.
It announced Friday there would be no capacity restrictions for the Coke Zero Sugar 400 this August. The stadium can hold more than 100,000 people.
It’s a big change from last year, when only 25% of those seats were filled because of COVID-19 restrictions. This year, officials hope they sell out.
“We are ready to welcome fans back,” said Frank Kelleher, president of Daytona International Speedway.
He said they still have not decided if masks or temperature checks will be required.
Kelleher said they are working closely with state and health officials, and there could be additional safety protocols you’ll see here at the track for the race in August.
