On Friday, NASCAR released a statement regarding the scheduled races at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The races were scheduled to be held in front of empty stands but NASCAR has now changed course and opted to postpone the races due to COVID-19, the coronavirus.

We believe this decision is in the best interest of the safety and well-being of our fans, competitors, officials and everyone associated with our sport.
