Letter From Chip Wile

To our fans:

First off, I would like to thank you for being a race fan of the “World Center of Racing” and NASCAR. Your continued passion, dedication and support shows why you are the greatest fans in sports.

As many of you know, in accordance with safety protocols recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), NASCAR has postponed its race events through May 9. Our intention remains to run all 36 races, with a potential return to racing without fans in attendance in May at a date and location to be determined.

This is certainly an unprecedented time in our country. While we love seeing our incredible fans enjoying great racing, the NASCAR industry stands aligned together with health workers, first responders and public health officials as we come together to get through this difficult time as a nation.

We will navigate through these extraordinary circumstances together. Please be safe and adhere to the precautionary measures recommended by the CDC and World Health Organization. Take care of yourselves and each other and we look forward to seeing you back at the race track soon. 



Chip Wile
President, Daytona International Speedway
