On Thursday morning (May 13), NASCAR announced it had updated its event operations protocol and will no longer require masks when outdoors in the infield.

Masks will still be mandated inside buildings, team haulers, or any other enclosed spaces and where state or local mandates necessitate mask use.

“Going forward, our focus is on encouraging everyone to get vaccinated and preventing indoor spread of COVID-19,” NASCAR said in a statement.
