WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (March 26, 2019) – The NASCAR Cup Series will return to Watkins Glen International Aug. 16 for the 2020 season as NASCAR today announced significant, dynamic changes to the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series schedule, with intriguing shifts during both the regular season and the Playoffs.

“The fans and the industry as a whole have been vocal about the desire for sweeping changes to the schedule, and the 2020 slate is a reflection of our efforts to execute against that feedback,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR executive vice president and chief racing development officer. “These changes are a result of unprecedented consensus-building with our race tracks and broadcast partners; something we look to continue into 2021 and beyond.”

Watkins Glen International will host the third to final race in the NASCAR regular-season, a chance for a driver to potentially stamp their ticket and earn a spot in the Playoffs. The entire 2020 NASCAR Cup Series schedule will once again air on either the FOX or NBC family of networks, MRN, PRN, IMS Radio, and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. Specific times and networks will be released at a later date.
