Capacity seating with no mask requirements is the expectation for racing events at Charlotte Motor Speedway this month.

“In accordance with (North Carolina) Gov. Roy Cooper’s latest executive order, grandstand seating limitations have been lifted, opening the door for more race fans to enjoy an action-packed month of May, including this weekend’s NGK NTK NHRA Four-Wide Nationals and the Memorial Day Weekend Coca-Cola 600. With anticipated call volume, fans interested in purchasing tickets are encouraged to do so online,” the raceway announced Friday afternoon.

The Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR Cup Series race is scheduled for May 30.

The 1.5-mile track has fixed seats for 79,000 but a listed capacity of 100,000.

Pod seating had been required by North Carolina health officials prior to this week.

Face masks are encouraged, but not required, for fans who have not received the COVID-19 vaccine.
