DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — NASCAR today announced a plan to reintroduce guests at select races beginning with the race at Homestead-Miami Speedway on June 14 and the race at Talladega Superspeedway on June 21.

Homestead-Miami Speedway will invite up to 1,000 service members as honorary guests for the race on June 14 and Talladega Superspeedway will allow 5,000 fans inside.
