NASCAR plans to return to Watkins Glen for August race

NASCAR is returning, and that means an August race is Watkins Glen will happen.

That race is scheduled for August 16th and remains on the books for NASCAR. However, at this time there won’t be any fans at the event.

At least not according to NASCAR’s current planning.

Officials say they’re working on a ‘Plan B’ so that spectating can happen to some degree.
