The NASCAR Cup Series team shops of Stewart-Hass Racing and Team Penske have both announced personnel who have tested positive for COVID-19.

Both teams are reporting that crew members worked at the race shop and have not traveled to any of the races.

Team Penske: “Earlier this week, Team Penske had one of its team members report positive for COVID-19. This employee has been in quarantine all week and has recovered without any further symptoms. Due to the team’s stringent protocols, only a few of our personnel had reason to quarantine, and none of those individuals are experiencing any symptoms. The identities of those impacted, along with additional details, will not be released due to privacy concerns.”

Robust protocols have been in place and continue to be followed diligently to mitigate the spread of the virus while maintaining the health and safety of all members of the organization and greater community.”
