Capacity restrictions lifted for Las Vegas Motor Speedway

NASCAR fans may be fired up to hear the South Point 400 NASCAR race is expected to be held at full capacity in September, after Clark County Commissioners Tuesday voted to increase capacity restrictions to 100% June 1.

“We’re very excited the Clark County Commission is going to free us up to sell 100% of our tickets. And thank goodness so many people have been vaccinated and the numbers have improved so much,” said Las Vegas Motor Speedway President Chris Powell.

Powell said the announcement will be good for ticket sales. Fans can purchase tickets now.

With capacity restrictions the Pennzoil 400 last March had only 15,000 or so fans, while the South Point 400 in September had no fans due to COVID-19.
