Even after decreasing the number of fans that would attend the Indianapolis 500 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and submitting an 88 page plan for executing the race in a way that was safe for fans AND drivers, the Indy 500 will run without fans in the audience.
It is anticipated that there will be about 1,500 personnel onsite for the race but on August 23rd, the stands will be sans-fans.
This news is neither surprising or shocking to many parents whose children started their school year from their living rooms and kitchens. Many local and national sports leagues have delayed or canceled their seasons. The fact that the Indy 500 can actually be held at all is a relief to race fans in Indianapolis and beyond.
