NASCAR, Formula 1, IndyCar postponement and cancellation updates

Many events across NASCAR, Formula 1 and IndyCar have been affected by the coronavirus outbreak. Check this page periodically for updates.

The coronavirus outbreak has caused the sporting world to come to a near standstill in recent days, with the NBA and NHL seasons having been suspended and the NCAA men’s and women’s basketball tournaments having been completely canceled following the regular season but before many conference tournaments had been played.

On the racing front, the plan is for action to still take place throughout the rest of 2020 across NASCAR, Formula 1 and IndyCar, but the world of motorsport has not escaped the effects of the outbreak.

Here is a list of the events which have been confirmed as affected in some way by the threat of COVID-19.
