NASCAR officials have once again tweaked the guidelines for Cup Series drivers competing in both the Xfinity and Gander Outdoors Truck Series.
Beginning in 2020, a driver with more than three full years of Cup Series experience will be limited to five starts in both the Xfinity and Truck Series. As it currently stands drivers with more than five full years of Cup Series experience can compete in seven Xfinity races and five Truck Series races.
This change was one of a few procedural updates NASCAR issued Wednesday about the 2020 season.
âThese updates to the Xfinity Series and Gander Trucks procedures continue our commitment to strengthening our race teams and providing a stronger field with even greater competition for our fans,â said Meghan Miley, NASCAR senior director of racing operations.
In the Xfinity Series:
Homestead-Miami Speedway on March 21 will serve as the qualifying race to kick off the Dash 4 Cash program. Texas Motor Speedway (March 28), Bristol Motor Speedway (April 4), Talladega Superspeedway (April 25), and Dover International Speedway (May 2) make up the Dash 4 Cash races.
In the Truck Series:
Richmond Raceway (April 18), Dover International Speedway (May 1), and Charlotte Motor Speedway (May 15) make up the 2020 Triple Truck Challenge races.
âWeâre excited about the return of the Dash 4 Cash in the Xfinity Series and the Triple Truck Challenge with the Gander Trucks,â continued Miley. âThese programs provide our teams with an incredible performance-based bonus opportunity each season. By removing the entry deadline requirement for the Triple Truck Challenge, we ensure our teams and fans know immediately if a driver is eligible to race for additional bonuses.â
