NASCAR Announces Current Race Weekend Format Will Continue Through 2020 Season

Story By: JOHN DOUGLAS / RPW – DAYTONA BEACH, FL – NASCAR announced on Tuesday that due to lingering issues from the COVID-19 pandemic, the sanctioning body will run the rest of the 2020 season for all three National Touring Series with no practice sessions or qualifying.

NASCAR Statement:

Following discussions with our race teams and the broader industry, NASCAR will continue to conduct its race weekends without practice and qualifying for the remainder of the 2020 season in all three national series. The current format has worked well in addressing several challenges during our return to racing. Most importantly, we have seen competitive racing week-to-week. NASCAR will adjust the starting lineup draw procedure for the Playoff races, and will announce the new process at a later date. – Scott Miller, NASCAR Senior Vice President, Competition
