Officials at Daytona International Speedway have a plan to introduce a return of fans to the iconic venue for the sports car classic IMSA WeatherTech 240 at Daytona Saturday, July 4.

Working closely with public health officials and local, state and federal authorities on amended safety protocols and procedures, the speedway will offer 5,000 fans the opportunity to attend the IMSA WeatherTech 240 with available seating in the frontstretch grandstands, as well as a limited number of infield camping guests. All must be Florida residents and will adhere to social distancing guidelines.

The race, part of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, will be showcased on the 3.56-mile high-banked tri-oval/infield road course. The event will take the green flag at 6:05 p.m. on Independence Day and end under the lights.

The limited camping spots will be in NASCAR’s Turns 1 & 2 areas of the infield (GEICO Grounds Yellow RV and Yellow Premium RV), near the Carousel Turn. Those fans will be required to watch the race from their RV site.

All guests will be screened before entering the facility, required to wear face coverings and maintain six-feet of social distancing throughout the venue.

The IMSA WeatherTech 240 is the first event in IMSA’s return to racing in 2020.
