LOUDON, N.H. — Fans will be allowed - with social distancing - at the NASCAR race scheduled at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Aug. 2.

The Foxwoods Resort Casino 301, originally scheduled for July 19, was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Speedway said Thursday there will be social distancing in the grandstands and concession lines; enhanced cleaning and sanitation in high-touch, high-traffic public areas; added hand-sanitizer stations; limited guests in suites; and infield admission for race team and operational personnel only.

"The state worked closely with the folks at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and the New Hampshire Division of Public Health to put forward comprehensive, operational guidance," Gov. Chris Sununu said in a statement. "While the stands will not be as full as they usually are, we are proud to be able to hold an in-person viewing experience for NASCAR fans."
