LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) will be able to host 12,500 fans or about 15% of the total capacity at its upcoming events.

The announcement of how many fans will be allowed came after last week's announcement that fans would be allowed to return to the speedway for NASCAR Weekend March 5-7.

“We are still hopeful to reach the governor’s 20-percent threshold. Under current recommendation from the Southern Nevada Health District, which the Nevada Department of Business and Industry has signed off upon, we are capped at 12,500 attendees including suite guests, which is approximately 15 percent of total capacity," said LVMS President Chris Powell.
