Indy 500 won’t al­lows spec­ta­tors

The Province - - SPORTS -

For the first time in the race’s his­tory, fans will not be al­lowed at the 104th In­di­anapo­lis 500 on Aug. 23. In­di­anapo­lis Mo­tor Speedway of­fi­cials made the an­nounce­ment Tues­day, about two weeks af­ter say­ing that ca­pac­ity at the track would be lim­ited to 25 per cent be­cause of the coro­n­avirus pan­demic. “We said from the be­gin­ning of the pan­demic that we would put the health and safety of our com­mu­nity first, and while host­ing spec­ta­tors at a lim­ited ca­pac­ity with our ro­bust plan in place was ap­pro­pri­ate in late June, it is not the right path for­ward based on the cur­rent en­vi­ron­ment,” they said in a news re­lease.
