The pre-screenings will include temperature checks along with a small questionnaire.

The Ballad Health Care nursing director for Bristol Motor Speedway, Robbie Parks, expects the pre-screenings at The Last Great Colosseum to go underway without issues.

“I’ve been in touch and contact, about daily, with NASCAR medical liaisons, and they’ve given us what worked in one place and what worked better in another place,” Parks said. “So, we think we have the best plan possible for this to occur smoothly and without incident.”

Ballad Health officials will be on-site Sunday at 5:30 a.m. and Monday at 7 a.m. to begin the screening process.
