Safety is our first and foremost priority. We have to crawl before we can walk and walk before we can run. Having fans for Xfinity Race is the next step. Not having attendees for Thursday (and providing a smaller capacity for Friday event) ensures we can perform the necessary enhanced cleaning protocols between events in order to provide the safest environment for our guests and participants.
