The ARCA Menards Series announced a minor schedule change on Tuesday (June 16), changing the venue of the race originally slated for Charlotte Motor Speedway and solidifying the schedule through July 24.
In a statement released by the division, the North Carolina track will no longer host its scheduled event. Teams will instead travel to Kentucky Speedway for a Saturday, July 11, event in the Bluegrass State, with a starting time to be determined.
The season was interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, and ARCA continues to plan out their races after its return this Saturday (June 20) at Talladega Superspeedway.
The series’ event at Elko Speedway was originally set for that date but has been postponed until a later date in 2020.
“The ARCA Menards Series has a rich history at Kentucky Speedway, and we’re excited to return,” ARCA President Ron Drager said in a statement. “Our teams are ready for the challenge and we know our fans watching at home will be treated to an exciting race.”
After this weekend’s race at Talladega, ARCA travels north to Pocono Raceway for a Friday, June 26, raceday. Following its visit to Pennsylvania, the series will race at Lucas Oil Raceway on July 3 before heading to Kentucky and will follow that event with a July 18 race under the lights at Iowa Speedway.
The July 24 race at Kansas Speedway concludes the six-week stretch for the series, with more track dates to be announced as the schedule evolves.
