In some ways, it was the same. Crews prepped cars, pushed them through inspection and prepared for Sunday’s Cup race at Darlington Raceway.

In many other ways, it was so much different. The new normal during the coronavirus pandemic requires social distancing, health screenings for all entering the track and wearing a mask at all times.

NASCAR returns after a 10-week break. What a sight it is for many fans. It’s just that some of the sights look a little different now.
