I'm thinking I might be in favor of re-opening NASCAR, as soon as we can get one tiny little detail locked down.
The state of North Carolina must require NASCAR to guarantee that employees and their families are covered for any COVID-19 (C19) related costs or losses. If a NASCAR security guard gets hospitalized with C19, the owners must pay the full cost of any and all care, with a 300% premium added to cover the cost of hazardous duty and lost wages. If a mechanic on a pit crew dies because of complications arising from C19, his family will get the going rate for the life of a human being, probably something in the $2 million range.
NASCAR would have to find insurers willing to make such agreements for health and life coverage before it could operate.
A contractual agreement is needed to account for all the elements of reward and risk. Citizens of North Carolina should not be in the business of subsidizing NASCAR profits by absorbing the C19 risks associated with their operations. They want to "re-open?" Let them pay the real costs of their decision.
The part I haven't thought through involves employee coercion. NASCAR no doubt has sub-contractors and temporary employees who wouldn't fit easily into this framework.
