NASCAR releases remainder of 2020 schedules, including playoffs

NASCAR unveiled the remainder of its 2020 schedule on Thursday which keeps the 10-race Cup Series playoff schedule as-is and adds Xfinity and Truck series races.

Denny Hamlin, Joe Gibbs Racing, FedEx Express Toyota Camry and Aric Almirola, Stewart-Haas Racing, Smithfield Hometown Original Ford Mustang lead the field to the start

The Cup Series postseason will kick-off at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway on Sunday, Sept. 6 and culminate with the crowning of a series champion for the first time at Phoenix Raceway on Sunday, Nov. 8.

In the Xfinity Series, one new venue, Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, has been added as the second race in the opening round of the playoffs on Saturday, Oct. 3 while Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway moves to the regular season finale on Friday, Sept. 18.

The series playoffs will now begin at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Saturday, Sept. 26.
