No fans for NASCAR races at Dover next month

Dover International Speedway

The NASCAR weekend in late August at Dover International Speedway in Delaware will take place without fans.

State officials denied the track's request to host a limited number of fans in the interest of public health and safety.

The track is to host an Xfinity Series race on Aug. 22 and a Cup Series race the next day.

NASCAR has run race weekends without fans with limited exceptions, notably at tracks in Tennessee and Texas.
