When the ARCA Menards Series returns to Lucas Oil Raceway, fans will be allowed to attend.
ARCA announced Friday, June 12, that the July 3 race will be held with spectators — albeit under the guidelines of the state of Indiana’s health and safety protocols.
For the race, the track will allow up to 50% capacity.
“ARCA, Menards, Track Enterprises and Lucas Oil Raceway place a priority on the health and safety of race fans, and will follow the Indiana Governor’s Office guidance in practicing all recommended healthcare safety protocols,” Bob Sargent of Track Enterprises said in a release. “Each individual entering the grounds will get a no-contact temperature check, social distancing including seating groups 6 feet apart will be implemented, and attendance will be limited to 50% of Lucas Oil Raceway seating capacity.
“Those attending are encouraged to wear face covering to the event, and complimentary masks will be available at the spectator entrance gate at no cost. Any updated Governor’s Office guidance’s issued in the interim will also be implemented.”
The July 3 race will mark the third event on the ARCA schedule since its return following a multi-month break due to the coronavirus pandemic. The series will first contest events on June 20 and June 26 at Talladega Superspeedway and Pocono Raceway, respectively.
The event at Lucas Oil will be broadcast on MavTV at 8 p.m. ET on July 3.
