Nascar eyes May return sans spectators

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida: NASCAR, which was looking to resume its suspended season with the May 9 race at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia, has ruled out that possibility, but remains intent on running a full 36-race season. 

NASCAR had suspended its season four events into the year when sports shut down because of the coronavirus pandemic.  

The organisers of the iconic American stock car auto racing series announced: “NASCAR is postponing the scheduled events on May 8-9 at Martinsville Speedway. Our intention remains to run all 36 races, with a potential return to racing without fans in attendance in May at a date and location to be determined. The health and safety of our competitors, employees, fans and the communities in which we run continues to be our top priority. We will continue to consult with health experts and local, state and federal officials as we assess future scheduling options,”
