Trans Am Announces 2020 Schedule

Series officials have released the 2020 Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli schedule, which will feature a 12-race calendar for the National Championship.

The opening rounds are nearly identical to 2019, with the 54th year of Trans Am kicking off at Sebring International Raceway as part of the SpeedTour Event, a doubleheader collaboration featuring Trans Am and the SportsCar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) February 29-March 1.

Another schedule highlight is the May 1-3 visit to WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. The 2019 season marked the first full Trans Am Series appearance at the Monterey circuit since 2004. The home of the Corkscrew turn will once again play host for the first of two Trans Am National and West Coast championship combined races that will see the competitors from the Trans Am West Coast Championship Presented by Pirelli take to the track.

“Last May, we started a new chapter of Trans Am in the West and it was a great success,” President of the Trans Am Race Company John Clagett said. “The drivers in both championships really enjoyed competing against each other through the elevation changes and fast turns of Laguna Seca, and we want to continue to foster that growth in 2020.”

A special event is set for July 10-12 at Brainerd International Raceway, which will honor the late track co-owner and former part-time Trans Am driver Jed Copham. Teams will compete for $35,000 in purse bonuses during the Jed Copham Memorial Weekend.

Trans Am will also once again stage two 100-mile races as part of the Xfinity NASCAR Series at Road America on August 8, completing its summer tour.

The final leg of the 2020 docket starts September 11-13 at Watkins Glen International, followed by a staple on the series’ schedule, VIRginia International Raceway (September 25-27).

After a weekend of racing in record-breaking heat in 2019, the Circuit of The Americas date moves from October back to November (6-8) in 2020, which will serve as the season finale for both the Trans Am National and West Coast championships.

The full official 2020 Trans Am Series West Coast presented by Pirelli Championship schedule will be released at a later date.
