TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! CORONAVIRUS IMPACT ON KANSAS SPEEDWAY NASCAR FANS THREATENS TO 'DEVASTATE' ECONOMY!!!
The American COVID-19 outbreak has already jeopardized the financial future of one of the biggest annual sporting events in the Kansas City metro.
To wit . . .
CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK LOCKDOWN THREATENS LOCAL ECONOMIC DEVIATION AT THE KANSAS SPEEDWAY AS DEBATES OVER CROWD CONTROL CONTINUE!!!
A glimpse at the debate on the national level . . .
Prez Trump promised a return to normal "sooner than people think" in his latest presser.
Meanwhile . . .
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told a coronavirus press briefing that the world may never return to the “normal” that was known before the outbreak.
At the very least, many public health officials have signaled that they won't give the "all clear" until a vaccine effort is up and running.
Meanwhile, the countdown for the May 31st debut of the NASCAR cup series is already on at the Kansas Speedway.
Estimates claims the event brings in more than $150-MILLION for local biz and many hotels, restaurants and merchants rely on the influx of tourists and fans.
The nearby KCK Legends outdoor shopping mall absolutely depends on the event even if their balance sheet is nothing to brag about . . .
Accordingly, here's perspective on the event sent our way . . .
"NASCAR is as big of a revenue generator as Christmas for many in KCK. Already there has been concern over the lack of reservations and a very clear signals that this will be a severely downsized event if authorities allow it to happen at all. If there is no NASCAR or a very limited series that would mean absolute devastation for dozens of businesses throughout the metro."
As of right now there is no formal guidance on public event policy with more than 401,636 American coronavirus cases reported and 12,905 deaths. Whilst some critics point to new estimates that are lower than many feared. The U.S. just suffered its most deadly day so far as pandemic numbers continue to rise.
