Illinois to Allow Motorsports to Resume
Good news! Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker announced that the state will advance to phase four of his Restore Illinois plan on June 26. During phase four, spectator sports facilities, including racetracks, may reopen to fan attendance at 20 percent of a venue’s capacity. Previously, motorsports venues were restricted to testing and tuning, and off-limits to spectators.
The SAN-supported Illinois Motorsports Coalition (IMC), a group comprised of racing facilities across Illinois, previously submitted an eight-step plan to Governor Pritzker to allow motorsports to safely resume statewide.
Performance Racing Industry (PRI) has compiled an up-to-date listing of motorsports’ status in each state. Check out the PRI website to discover whether racing venues in your area are ready to drop the green flag.
Thank you to those who voiced their support on this issue.
