Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks

More of the 2020 NASCAR Cup, Xfinity and Gander RV & Outdoors Truck series’ regular-season schedules, as well as that of the ARCA Menards Series, was released on Wednesday, July 8.

The update features 19 total races at Michigan International Speedway, Dover International Raceway, the World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway, the Daytona International Speedway road course and oval, and a standalone Xfinity event at Road America.

Cup will host doubleheaders at Michigan on Aug. 8-9 and Dover on Aug. 22-23.

All four series will race on the Daytona road course from Aug. 14-16; these events replace the originally scheduled Watkins Glen International races.

The Truck race at Gateway will be the 14th event of the season, instead of the first race of the playoffs.

Additionally, Truck races originally scheduled to run at Eldora Speedway and Canadian Tire Motorsports Park were realigned to a track and date yet to be announced; the series will not race at either of those tracks in 2020. Xfinity races that were set to run at Michigan and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course were also realigned to another track or tracks to be determined.

The next races on the schedule, which have not yet been announced, will begin the playoffs for each series.

I guess 4:00 and 4:30 starts at tracks with no lights are the new 3:00. TV I know.


For years there have been complaints about the start times getting later in the day.NA$CAR says they make decisions based on what the fans want. So what do they do? They move the start times LATER in the day. Makes cents to me.
