Wow. All sorts of events are being cancelled or being held without fans. NBA and NHL suspends it's seasons. March Madness is cancelled. I just heard Atlanta and Homestead races will be run with limited fan access. Nascar is used to some empty seats at it's races but this will be huge for the track operators, motels and so many vendors.

They just cancelled the Atlanta and Homestead events completely, following the lead of the NCAA and others who had at first announced having their events but with no spectators.

One of two things has happened. Either there is a lot of pressure to go ahead and cancel completely, or they've thought through the economics of having only TV revenue without spectators. I suspect the latter is true.

Self imposed quarantine won't have any live TV entertainment.

Today my wife and I tried to watch the fake NASCAR race on FS1. After 10 laps I asked my wife what she thought. She said it was watching someone playing video games, which it was. We turned it off. I'll be glad when real racing comes back.

If I want to watch computer generated animation of races I'll watch the Disney movie Cars.

Watched some of the 1986 Miller High Life 400 race at Richmond this morning on FS1. It was great!

The iRacing is very entertaining. It is great to watch until real racing comes back. The length of the races is just right. Great job iRacing and Fox Sports.

I have enjoyed them. It isn't the real thing, but something to watch instead of Utube videos while under shelter in place.
