NASCAR announced Tuesday significant changes to its 2020 Cup Series schedule, which will affect the regular season and playoffs.

Chicagoland Speedway won’t be nearly as impacted as other venues by next season’s schedule overhaul.

After the Joliet racetrack moved its main event from September to June 30 this season, Chicagoland Speedway will host its 2020 Cup Series event on June 21.

The most notable change of next season’s schedule is with NASCAR’s Cup Series title race. The event, which was previously in Miami, will take place in Phoenix after the ISM Raceway received a $178 million makeover. It’s also scheduled for a week earlier than previous seasons on Nov. 8.

NASCAR also has Indianapolis Motor Speedway hosting July Fourth Weekend. The coveted spot was previously owned by Daytona International Speedway.

Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pennsylvania, will host back-to-back premier series events on June 27 and 28.

The Bristol Night Race, which is usually scheduled for August, was moved to Sept. 19, making it the final race of first round of the playoffs.
