The 2020 NASCAR Whelen Euro Series schedule has been revealed, featuring thirteen rounds across seven nations.

“Next year’s schedule is a testament to the strength and popularity of the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series,” NASCAR Chief International Officer Gene Stefanyshyn said. “The series will bring exciting, side-by-side NASCAR racing to fans in seven countries across Europe. Our proximity to several big cities – including the new American Festival in Rome – will continue to make it easy for families to see our style of racing up close.”

The major change to the schedule is the addition of Autodromo Piero Taruffi in Vallelunga near Rome, Italy. Used by various racing series, the track replaces the Autodromo di Franciacorta in Castrezzato.

“We are really happy and honoured that Vallelunga is entering the NASCAR world with the first edition of a new event,” track president Carlo Alessi commented. “We want it to be a true festival celebrating North American culture and US motorsports, full of passion, music and unique colors. We are sure fans from Rome and all around Italy will answer with great enthusiasm and we will be ready to welcome them.”

Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia will continue to serve as the season opener, doing so on 25–26 April. Brands Hatch in the U.K., Autodrom Most in the Czech Republic, and Raceway Venray in the Netherlands comprise the remaining regular season schedule. The Elite 1 and 2 Divisions, renamed EuroNASCAR Pro and EuroNASCAR 2 for 2020, will perform a 100- and 70-lap doubleheader at Venray.

After taking August off, the playoffs will begin at Vallelunga, this time featuring the use of double points. Circuit Zolder is the second round of the playoffs, with the season finale at the Hockenheimring for the first time after swapping places with Zolder.

The EuroNASCAR Club Challenge, which will enter its fourth year in 2020, will be contested at Valencia, Most, Zolder, and Hockenheim.
