“While we wish we could have a full house with the greatest fans in motorsports, the health and safety of everyone is our top priority and we are excited that we can still share this NASCAR championship weekend experience with many in a safe environment,” said Phoenix Raceway President Julie Giese in a statement. “The entire Phoenix Raceway team has been looking forward to hosting the track’s first-ever championship weekend since it was announced in March of last year, and we’re thrilled to be able to welcome fans all three days to share in this monumental event for our venue, our community and the entire state of Arizona.”

The track states in a media release that season ticket holders will receive priority for tickets. The track will not be able to accommodate some ticket holders. Phoenix Raceway stated it will issue a credit to those displaced accounts toward the 2021 championship weekend. Also, the track’s INfield Experience will not be open to fans. Camping will still be available. All campers will be pre-screened upon arrival. Campsites are limited to a maximum six guests per spot.

The track’s release also states that fans will be screened before entering the gates. Fans age 3 and up are required to wear a face covering. Go here for more information on the track’s protocols.
