CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — It will be a summer in the South for NASCAR: The stock car series says it will stick to Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia, Florida and Alabama for June races — all of them without fans.

NASCAR has now set plans for 20 races, including nine in the elite Cup Series. It is coming back after being shut down for more than two months by the pandemic.
