NASCAR Moves 2020 Brickyard 400 to July Fourth Weekend

ISM Raceway in Avondale Ariz. will host the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series finale beginning in 2020

International Speedway Corp., the company controlled by the NASCAR-owning France family, moved the season finale to ISM Raceway outside of Phoenix.

The March 22, 2020 date in Homestead will be the sixth race in the new schedule.

Martinsville (Va.) Speedway's first race date is now scheduled for Mother's Day weekend on Saturday, May 9, with the event scheduled to take place at night for the first time.

The championship race is being moved from Homestead-Miami Speedway to ISM Raceway in Avondale, Arizona.

Kasey Kahne, driver of the #5 Farmers Insurance Chevrolet, crosses the finish line under caution to win the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motorspeedway on July 23, 2017 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

It's unclear if NASCAR could start rotating the championship race between cities like the National Football League does with its Super Bowl.

The annual West Coast swing - Las Vegas, Fontana and Phoenix - will begin one week earlier, with the race at Atlanta Motor Speedway moving back to March to try to ensure better weather at the venue.

During the summer, Pocono Raceway will have just one weekend but will still hold two Cup Series races. Bristol is now the first elimination race of the playoffs, while the roval at Charlotte is the eliminating race of the second round of the playoffs.

IMS President Doug Boles said Tuesday that he's excited about the change.

The Daytona International Speedway announced the Coke Zero Sugar 400 in Daytona will no longer be scheduled for Independence Day Weekend after the 2019 race. Speedway President Clay Campbell noted fans have asked "literally every single day since we installed the lights" when Martinsville would have a Cup race at night.

"Pocono Raceway will be a marquee, bucket-list event next year", said Pocono CEO Nick Igdalsky. "These changes are a result of unprecedented consensus-building with our race tracks and broadcast partners; something we look to continue into 2021 and beyond". Las Vegas also follows the February 16 Daytona 500 as the first race of NASCAR's annual trip west.
