    2020 NASCAR schedule scrambling

    Next season, the schedule we have been used to is going to be scrambled a great deal. I heard something about the July 4th weekend race being switched between Indy and Daytona, so I did some looking, and there is a lot more to the changes...

    - West coast swing will start immediately after Daytona, and Atlanta moved to after Fontana.
    - The two races at Pocono will occur on consecutive days... Saturday and Sunday sometime in June.
    - The above mentioned trade of dates for Indy and Daytona -2. NASCAR want to boost the interest for the Brickyard 400, knowing that Daytona has no issues. The Daytona race will be the last race in the regular season, making it a free-for-all race for those off the bubble.
    - Darlington and the Bristol Night Race will be a part of the playoffs...and the playoffs will start on the Labor Day weekend. The final race of the playoffs will no longer be at Homestead... it will now be at the Arizona track, and Homestead and Dover will be moved to the regular season.
    - There will be two week break to allow NBC to focus on the Olympics. Also, the overall season will end a week earlier, due in part for having back-to-back games. Also some schedule changes to bring a few games to to Sunday afternoon, vs. Sunday evening.

    Sorry I missed that. I thought that thread was confined to rules in 2019, not for NASCAR in general. For the pool, it will make things a bit complicated for the Pocano races, have to think that one through, once the current season is though. Stuff like schedules should have its own thread, in my humble opinion, lol. Carry on.

    Indianapolis Motor Speedway ‘considering everything’ on prospect of track layout
    By
    Pat DeCola NASCAR.com September 8, 2019 at 12:36 PM

    SPEEDWAY, Ind. — After seeing the stand-out success of last season’s road course/oval layout at Charlotte Motor Speedway, could a similar concept be deployed at Indianapolis Motor Speedway down the road?

    In short, maybe.

    “We have considered the road course and we still continue to talk about it,” IMS track president J. Douglas Boles said Sunday morning ahead of the 2019 Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard (2 p.m. ET, NBC/NBC Sports App, IMS Radio Network, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

    “I think the challenge for us, especially with respect to the Monster Energy (NASCAR Cup Series), is where we’re really an oval brand and the Monster Energy Cup is really an oval brand and … what makes running here special is winning on the oval where Ray Harroun won, where AJ Foyt won, where Wilbur Shaw, you can just go through the list of names, where Jeff Gordon won. That’s what really makes this special.”

    I hope they don't change the oval to roval at Indy, but if they want to add another race... maybe. Indy oval is difficult because it's flat, at least for NASCAR.

    I take my Lotus e21 around the oval at Indianapolis speedway Xbox at full throttle (I gotta back off in turn 3 just a bit, that lotus does great in the corners, flat or banked. That F1 car is is instant speed and instant reaction... some thunder too
    Try that same speed in Kevin Harvick's freaky fast car and I am in the wall everytime
