The Daytona International Speedway announced the Daytona 500 will have limited fan capacity next year due to COVID-19.

The Speedway said they will continue to work with local and state health officials regarding fan attendance at the 63rd annual event set for Feb. 14.

"While the stands may not be 101,500 strong, one truth remains: we are as committed as ever to delivering a best-in-class experience at the World Center of Racing for The Great American Race. From the awe of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds flyover, to the rumble of 40 engines roaring around the high banks on the biggest stage in motorsports – the DAYTONA 500 is sure to once again deliver the pageantry, thrills, and drama for all fans, especially those able to attend in person."
