PRESS – Unfortunately the press box will be closed during current COVID-19 guidelines so we can social distance employees working the event. Several have situations putting them in high COVID-19 risk category.

Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway a GO for SATURDAY JULY 11

Based on our inquiries and understanding of the latest Allegheny County order we plan on racing this Saturday night July 11, with gates opening a 5PM.

We are continuing to monitor the situation and will advise folks of any new developments going forward.

Working Together to Avoid COVID-19

The health and safety of our Fans, Race teams and Employees is our top priority. In these unprecedented times, we have implemented enhanced health and safety measures to help protect everyone. But we can’t do it alone. We are counting on everyone’s efforts to do their part by cooperating with these new measures that are designed to keep every person visiting and/or working at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway (PPMS) healthy and safe.

All attending PPMS EVENTS MUST

  • Wear face coverings per CDC guidelines
  • Submit to temperature check at arrival
  • Wash hands often with soap and water
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Maintain appropriate (6 ft.) distance from others not in your travel party

While we are committed to enhanced standards in an effort to keep you as healthy and safe as possible, there remains an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place and any place where people are present. People who do not show symptoms can still spread COVID-19. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and persons with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable and at higher risk for severe illness. All attendees should familiarize themselves with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and evaluate their risk in determining whether they should attend Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. If you or a family member are ill or think that you may be getting ill, please postpone your visit until you are well.

By visiting Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway  you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

June 10, 2020

Governor Tom Wolf today released updated guidance regarding the types of outdoor recreation that businesses may offer during the yellow and green phases of reopening, and how they may do so safely, as the commonwealth continues to open its own public recreation facilities across the state.

“As summer quickly approaches and all 67 counties are in either yellow or green phases of reopening, it was important to provide businesses with the guidance necessary to safely reopen or plan for reopening as they reach the green phase,” Gov. Wolf said. “I want all Pennsylvanians to remain active and to enjoy all the recreation the commonwealth has to offer, but we must do so safely and with social distancing top of mind.”

The new guidance allows outdoor activities like mountain biking, outdoor miniature golf, motorsports venues, go carts, rock climbing, disc golf, paintball, horse riding, tennis, archery or shooting, and other similar facilities that conduct operations outdoors to resume operation in yellow phase counties.

Businesses that operate these outdoor recreational activities may resume operations but may not operate indoor spaces for public or visitor use other than restrooms and ticketing and entry locations.

Online ticketing and timed or staged entry are strongly encouraged to manage occupancy rates and physical distancing.

These businesses must ensure that visitors practice social distancing and do not congregate at entry gates, kiosks, concession stands, or similar locations.

The announcement comes as Pennsylvania’s own recreational facilities are reopening to the public, with facilities in state parks and forests such as cabins, cottages, lodges, and yurts opening statewide on Friday, June 12, and most state park swimming pools in yellow phase and green phase counties reopening as of Saturday, June 13. As of Saturday, June 6, all 58 state park beaches are open to swimming.

Capacity at beaches and pools will be limited to 50 percent of the normal facility capacity and mitigation measures, including restricting visitor parking, controlling facility access, ensuring social distancing and the wearing of face masks when not in the water, must remain in place. All Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance remains in effect.

The updated guidance can be found here.

More information on Governor Wolf’s Process to Reopen Pennsylvania can be found here.

Help Stop the Spread

Wear A Mask in Public

Members of the public are encouraged to wear homemade cloth or fabric masks. Save surgical masks and N95 respirators  for our health care workers and first responders. Remember this saying: “My mask protects you, your mask protects me.”

Wear a mask when:

    • Shopping at essential businesses, like grocery stores or pharmacies
    • Visiting your health care provider
    • On public transportation
    • Interacting with customers/clients at essential businesses
    • Feeling sick, coughing or sneezing
How to make a homemade mask:

Materials needed:

  • Fabric (100% cotton is most effective)
  • Fabric Ties
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine or a needle and thread

Instructions:

  • Measure and cut two pieces of fabric in a rectangle pattern to fit snugly around the face (size
    12 inches by 6 inches is standard for adults).
  • Tightly sew both layers together on all edges.
  • Cut fabric ties to fit around the ears.
  • Sew the ties to the insides of the mask on the smaller edge, repeat on both sides.
  • Resew the sides to ensure a tight seal between both pieces of fabric and the earpiece.

Unable to sew? Follow these simple instructions for a no-sew maskOpens In A New Window.

Wash Your Hands

Washing your hands is one of the most important steps you can take in staying healthy. When you wash, make sure you:

  1. Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
  2. Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
  4. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
  5. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them. Washing hands with soap and water is the best way to get rid of germs in most situations.

If soap and water are not readily available, you can use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.

Cover Your Mouth and Nose

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not recommend the routine use of face masks and respirators in the community. Most often, the spread of germs from person-to-person happens among close contacts (within 6 feet).

Avoid Touching Your Face

Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.

Clean Surfaces

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces  — especially when someone is ill.

Practice Social Distancing

  • Stay home as much as you can
  • Avoid public spaces
  • Keep at least 6 feet between you and others if you must go out
  • Don’t attend or host large gatherings
  • Avoid using mass transit
