Talladega Superspeedway announced today its race dates for the 2020 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) season.
The track’s traditional springtime premier series event weekend will remain the same, being held on Sunday, April 26, 2020, while in the fall, the race moves up one week (from 2019) to October 4, 2020, but will remain as the second race in the Round of 12 of NASCAR’s Playoffs.
“There’s nothing like racing at Talladega in the springtime, and coming back in the fall for nail-biting NASCAR playoff action,” said Grant Lynch, Chairman of Talladega Superspeedway. “We are again excited about where our races fall on NASCAR’s schedule. We will continue to celebrate our 50th anniversary this year but also look forward to 2020 and beyond.”

Before 2020 rolls around, however, Talladega Superspeedway has some serious business to conduct in ’19, and that starts with the upcoming tripleheader weekend (April 26-28), featuring the GEICO 500 for the MENCS, the MoneyLion 300 for the NASCAR Xfinity Series and the General Tire 200 for the ARCA Menards Series.
The track unveiled its new 2-lane Oversized Vehicle Tunnel to the media Tuesday that will be utilized by fans in a few weeks. The new tunnel will be capable of allowing fans’ large recreational vehicles as well as race team haulers to enter and exit the track simultaneously with ease. It will be open 24 hours during event weekends. In addition to the completed tunnel, the track will open its new Finish Line Premium RV area, complete with full hookups, which will also make its fan debut in a few weeks.
