Yes Burke Lakefront Airport where the race is held is closed down. The runways are the track. The planes in the way on the event would probably have to be moved mabey to a diffrent place on the ramp. Private planes and biz-jets could use Hopkins Intl. or Cuyohoga County Airport while Burke is closed.-che

Also note that Burke Lakefront Airport, where the race is being held, is not Cleveland's primary airport. Cleveland's main airport (CLE) is Hopkins Int'l, where all commercial airliner activity is located. Burke Lakefront is used primarily for general aviation as well as a few corporate jets here and there.
