Dover International Speedway’s 2020 NASCAR Cup Series dates set for May 1-3, Aug. 21-23

Dover International Speedway will host two NASCAR Cup Series races on Sunday, May 3 and Sunday, Aug. 23 in 2020, track officials announced following NASCAR’s release of the full NASCAR Cup Series 2020 schedule.

 

The Monster Mile has hosted two NASCAR Cup Series events every year since 1971 and has been Delaware’s only major professional sports venue since it hosted its first race on July 6, 1969.

 

Dover International Speedway’s two 2020 NASCAR Cup Series races are scheduled for Sunday, May 3 and Sunday, Aug. 23 capping two full race weekends. See full 2020 NASCAR Cup Series, Xfinity Series and Gander Outdoor Truck Series  schedules below.

 

2020 will be the first year that Dover hosts a NASCAR race weekend in August. All other second weekends at the Monster Mile have come in September or October.

 

“With all of the stakeholders that are involved in assembling the NASCAR schedule – it is a difficult task to meet everyone’s needs. However, it is always with a ‘fan-first’ mentality that the schedule is produced,” said Mike Tatoian, Dover International Speedway president and CEO. “Moving our second weekend into the end of the summer should allow more families with young NASCAR fans to visit us before the school year begins, and we are for the most part removed from the crowded professional and collegiate sports landscape in the fall.”
