Local Sports

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf addressed the possible return of NASCAR as well as talks with NFL, NHL, MLB and more on Tuesday.

Governor Wolf was asked about the return of NASCAR to the Poconos Raceway during the “yellow phase.” Wolf responded by talking about how the state is working with a number of pro sports leagues to bring them back safely.

NASCAR returned to racing over the weekend at Darlington Raceway in South Carolina. Kevin Harvick won the event in front of empty stands.

Monday, the governors of both Texas and California announced timelines for pro sports returning. Texas Governor Greg Abbot said pro sports can be played in Texas starting on May 31. California governor Gavin Newsom announced pro sports can return possibly in the first week of June. This, of course, would also involve safety precautions and no fans in attendance.
