Portland International Raceway announced a fan limit of 25% for all their events this season. This is great news. It means that the Indycar race scheduled for September 12 is a go. Fans who had tickets for the cancelled 2020 race had the option to defer tickets to 2021. Portland is the third track to announce a track spectator limit.
Barber Motorsports Park didn’t set a specific limit, but will only admit fans who park inside the facility. St. Pete has a 20,000 fan limit per day. Mid Ohio is limited by the state of Ohio to 30% of capacity. That should be around 20,000 or so fans.
Still waiting for a figure from Indianapolis Motor Speedway about the fan limit for the Indianapolis 500.
All announced limits are subject to change as the COVID situation changes. Let’s hope all changes point in the direction of more fans allowed.

Sebring Broadcast Times
Broadcast times and channels for the 12 Hours of Sebring Saturday:
I’m disappointed at the small amount of over the air television time, but that is less time to hear about Jimmie Johnson. At least the final three hours is on. After sunset is when this race gets crazy. More on Sebring tomorrow.
