The echo at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will be a bit more pronounced this month.

Roger Penske has reversed the previous decision, and fans will NOT be allowed in the stands at the 104th running off The Greatest Spectacle In Racing.

The race will be the first without spectators, and has already been moved from Memorial Day weekend to August 23 due to the pandemic.

Penske originally said he wouldn’t run the race without fans, and decided to limit capacity to 50%, then 25%. The continued rise in cases in Indiana — and especially in Marion County — caused Penske to make the announcement Tuesday.
