Tentative Schedule Announced

Going into the 95th season, the tentative racing schedule has been announced for 2020. While more details will be released as we get closer, the schedule is going to be bigger and better than last year.

Enduros were popular among drivers and fans last year, so the number of events has been increased. This includes the addition of a road course scheduled for June 13th.

The regular season will kick off with the season opener on May 1st, and will conclude with Fan Appreciation & Season Finale on August 21st. The action does not stop there, however, with several more racing events slated in the fall.
