The 2020 Indianapolis 500 will be an extremely unique one. Every event has been held in May thus far, so the fact that it will be held in late August is already a huge change. On top of that, there will be far from a capacity crowd at the vaunted venue for the 104th running.
Track owner Roger Penske had to spread some more bad news on Tuesday by announcing that the capacity was going to be reduced from 50% down to 25% for the race. While it is better than no fans at all, it is big blow to the event for sure. There will be temperature checks implemented, masks will be required, food will be packaged at the concession stands, and hand sanitizer is going to be widely handed out. The track holds 230,000 fans, so approximately 57,500 will be allowed in. The race takes place on August 23rd.
