LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – NASCAR announced that its season will resume May 17th at Darlington Raceway. This would be the first national series race of 7 that would be held in 11 days.

NASCAR plans to hold one day events at the tracks instead of holding practice, qualifying and other races on multiple days at a single track. The races would take place without fans and all competitors and crew would be tested for the coronavirus.

The NASCAR season was paused following the 4th race of the season at Phoenix. Las Vegas is still scheduled to hold its fall race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway September 27.
