NASCAR Announces 2020 Schedule Through Cup Series Regular Season Finale Weekend

NASCAR has announced its schedule of events through August for all three national series and the ARCA Menards Series. The updated calendar includes two additional NASCAR Cup Series doubleheaders, and two separate stops—on two different courses—at Daytona International Speedway.

The NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, and ARCA Menards Series will visit Michigan International Speedway on Aug. 7-9, featuring a Cup Series doubleheader on Saturday, Aug. 8 and Sunday, Aug. 9. Meanwhile, the NASCAR Xfinity Series will visit Road America on Saturday, Aug. 8.

For the first time, the NASCAR Cup Series will race on the storied road course at Daytona International Speedway during the August 14-16 weekend. The road course-oval hybrid, most noted for the annual running of the Rolex 24 At DAYTONA, will feature races across all three national series and the ARCA Menards Series. The historic races will replace NASCAR’s annual visit to Watkins Glen International.

As part of the 2020 revised schedule, World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway, which was originally slated to host the first race of the Gander Trucks playoffs, will now become race number 14 of the regular season on Sunday, Aug. 30.

NASCAR’s modified event procedures and protocols have been finalized in accordance with public health officials, medical experts and local, state, and federal officials. NASCAR will determine if fans are allowed entrance to NASCAR Cup Series races on a market-by-market basis, in accordance with local and state guidelines.
