Overview: The New York Motorsports Coalition (NYMC), a group comprised of racing facilities across New York, has submitted a comprehensive, SAN-supported plan to Governor Andrew Cuomo that would allow motorsports to safely resume with limited spectators statewide. As it stands, New York residents must travel to neighboring states in order to enjoy racing. The governor has announced that casinos and shopping malls may now reopen. As outdoor facilities, racetracks should be granted similar permission to safely conduct events with fans.
