NASCAR is back, with social distancing

NASCAR is one of the first sports to return, but not at full capacity. This is a big race weekend at Texas Motor Speedway in north Texas.

TMS president Eddie Gossage says this weekend was originally scheduled for March.

"The state of Texas allows professional sports venues to host crowds of up to 50%, so we'll open our gates with social distancing as our guiding principle."

Half of TMS is 65,000. Gossage says the ticket rules have changed, too.

"All tickets will be mobile tickets on your phone. Your hard ticket is no longer good for admission. You'll receive an email from our ticket office containing a form to RSVP for the race."

Gossage says all questions are answered at their web site.

"Please, go to and read everything there is about how you can attend the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500. We work for the fans."

The O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 is this Sunday afternoon.
