The annual tradition of families heading to Michigan International Speedway to watch a NASCAR race Father's Day weekend will not be an option in 2021.

NASCAR announced their 2020 schedule Wednesday, and also announced some changes, according to Autoweek. This year, there will be a dirt track race as part of the Race for the Cup, two speedways (Kentucky Speedway and Chicagoland Speedway) will not host races at all, and three speedways (Michigan International Speedway, Dover International Speedway, and Texas Motor Speedway) all drop from two races down to one.

Michigan International Speedway has traditionally hosted the race on Father's Day weekend and then another in late August. The June stop at MIS has been scrapped, but the August date remains. The Father's Day race this year will be run at Nashville Superspeedway.

In a release, MIS said:

Fans who previously held tickets for Michigan International Speedway’s June NASCAR weekend will have the opportunity to relocate to comparable seating for the August 2021 race weekend, based on availability.

Two races were held at MIS in 2020, but there were no fans in attendance at either race. It remains to be seen what the 2021 season will look like in regards to spectators.
