The Office of North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper has released a new COVID-19 PSA featuring two of NASCAR’s biggest names. In the video, former Hendrick Motorsports teammates Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson speak about ways to slow the spread of the coronavirus outbreak.
The two North Carolina residents advise viewers on proper hand washing and the risk of transmitting the disease. Gordon and Johnson acknowledge the challenges that lie ahead for all of us but also offer words of encouragement. You can see the video below.
On March 25th, NASCAR notified teams that an employee who was at Atlanta Motor Speedway earlier in the month tested positive for COVID-19. During its hiatus, NASCAR is offering fans virtual races featuring current, past, and rising stars on the iRacing platform. The simulated races are airing Sundays at 1:00 PM on Fox and FS1. NASCAR hopes to resume real racing in May.
