CARS Tour Implements Guidelines to Prevent Spread of COVID-19

Until further notice, the CARS Tour will continue to implement policies to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. The policies were introduced at Ace Speedway on June 6. They include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • All personnel will have their temperature screened before entering the race track.

  • Driver Intros will not be held amongst the crowd, per usual; instead, drivers will be introduced from their cars on the grid.

  • Trailers will be spread out across the infield to maintain proper social distancing.

  • Spotters will be required to wear masks during the race.

  • Masks will be strongly recommended for those who are in the infield and required for all Victory Lane celebrations.

Hickory Motor Speedway will be limited to 50% capacity for this event.
