The news on Saturday that the Honda Indy 200 doubleheader at the Mid-Ohio Sportscar Course has been postponed until at least late September due to the COVID 19 global pandemic casts serious doubt on the viability of running the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge in three weeks from TODAY!

Paddock Eye has learnt that there were nearly 1,000 new cases of COVID 19 reported in the state of Indiana alone on Friday.

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway have already confirmed that the percentage of spectators at the race in three weeks will stand at just 25 percent of the total capacity of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The United States has seen a spike in the number of COVID 19 cases and deaths due to this dreadful disease and although there have been no positive COVID 19 cases reported within the IndyCar community and now sadly unfortunately it is not the right time for the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge to take place.
