Dover International Speedway

Race fans will be permitted to attend Dover International Speedway's May 14-16 NASCAR weekend.

Speedway officials announced in a statement they have received permission from the Delaware Division of Public Health to host fans after DPH approved their COVID-19 mitigation plan.

Dover Speedway officials issued a further statement after WDEL asked what any capacity limits may look like.

"Until we get through the reseating process, we won’t know what our actual attendance will be with the types of responses we will get from our fans. We are just thankful we can host fans for in 2021 – we missed seeing them in 2020!"

Track officials add that anyone anyone who has already purchased a ticket to the May weekend will be permitted to attend, although tickets for the "Drydene 400" on Sunday will be paused as the track reconfigures its seating chart to match their new plan.

The track promises all ticketholders will hear from the track directly and are urged to respond quickly.

Dover's response comes just hours after a post by Ticketmaster, incorrectly stating the event had been canceled.
