Fans attending the Indianapolis 500 will be limited to about 50% capacity when the race runs on August 23, Indianapolis Motor Speedway President J. Douglas Boles said Friday.

Boles also said additional health and safety measures will be considered.

In late March, the Indianapolis 500 was postponed to August 23 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. No word yet what safety precautions will be taken at the event.
