    FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) -  Outdoor pro sports venues in Texas can open with limited 25% capacity next week.

    That would seem to be good news for Texas Motor Speedway which is ready to host an IndyCar race on June 6th. But track president Eddie Gossage says it's too early for his people to work out the details.

    Gossage says there are too many unanswered questions about that 25% figure.

    As just one example, he cites their luxury suites. He says information from the state is vague about whether the limit applies to the total capacity of all the suites combined - or to the capacity of each individual suite.

    Until the state clarifies, Gossage says they'll just go ahead and run the race and televise it with no fans in the stands, as planned all along.
