NASCAR will remain out of action for a bit longer following the COVID-19 pandemic.

Initially set to reschedule two rounds, the series has now decided to postpone seven events.

NASCAR wanted to run its next two races, Atlanta and Homestead, behind closed doors.

The series initially went through with the decision, as all teams made their way to the Georgia oval.

As the situation worsened, NASCAR ultimately decided to postpone both rounds.

A conference call held between the series organizers and the teams led to an extended suspension.

Following the decision to postpone five more races, NASCAR will now remain suspended until May.
