The month of August, which includes nineteen events from August 7th to August 30th – 6 NASCAR Cup Series events, 5 NASCAR Xfinity Series events, 4 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series events and 4 ARCA Menards Series events — will bring the NASCAR Cup Series to end of the regular season, setting sixteen drivers and teams up for the ten-race playoffs later in the season.

Notes:

  • Both Dover International Speedway and Michigan International Speedway will play host to “doubleheader weekends” in August. Dover will host five NASCAR National Series events over the course of three days.
  • The quadruple-header weekend at the Daytona International Speedway Road Course will take the place of Watkins Glen International – which is unable to host any NASCAR events due to increasing COVID-19 guidelines. — marking the first time that any NASCAR National Series has run an event on the road course. Daytona International Speedway’s road course is scheduled to host “The Clash” in February of 2021.
  • World Wide Technology Raceway (previously Gateway) will be moved from the first race of the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series playoffs to race No. 14 of the regular season. The ARCA and NASCAR Truck Series weekend at WWT will overlap the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series weekend at Daytona’s superspeedway.
  • The NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series will not run their annual events at Eldora Speedway and Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in 2020. Both races will be realigned and rescheduled at a later date.
  • The NASCAR Xfinity Series will not run their annual event at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course (scheduled for the end of May). Mid-Ohio’s date has yet to be realigned and rescheduled.
  • The NASCAR Xfinity Series will not join the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series in Michigan, as the series’ race at the track will be realigned and rescheduled at a later date.
