The track for the 2020 Lee County Speedway schedule has been released and it looks like the schedule will be jam-packed with exciting races! If you’re a fan of auto racing and like to follow the action from behind the wheel, then you’ll want to make sure you have your driver’s license and a credit card handy when you go to the bookmaker’s window!
The season opener for the 45th annual race is set for March 4th and it will be broadcast live on the Score Sports Radio Network. The feature race will be the 45th running of the Brickyard 400 and the starting lineup for the 100-lap feature is set!
The NASCAR Whelen Western Challenge will kick off the season on October 23rd and it will be followed by the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on November 27th. The last two races of the season will be the famous Ironman race on December 11th and the season finale will be the Icebreaker 400 on January 4th, 2021.
When To Watch
The best time to watch the races for the Lee County Speedway is after work hours on your computer or mobile device. While most tracks run their events from mid-April to October, the Lee County Speedway keeps the fans coming back for more with their annual Winter Park Speed Fest from December 18th to December 20th. If you’re a fan of motorsports, then there’s no other place to be!
On the other coast, the NASCAR hauler’s parade is one of the highlights of the year for NASCAR fans. This year’s edition will be held on December 11th and it will be preceded by the 2020 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season opener on October 7th. You don’t want to miss a single minute of it!
The season is still young, but you can already see some definite trends. The NASCAR Whelen Western Challenge is scheduled for the first half of the year while the remaining races will be spread out more evenly. The races leading up to the Indianapolis 500 will be the toughest to call because of the limited number of weekends that the Verizon IndyCar Series will run. That’s something to keep an eye on. There will also be a handful of one-off races throughout the season, most of which will be held in either Canada or the United States of America.
As mentioned above, the schedule for the 2020 Lee County Speedway has been released and it looks like the organizers have crammed every available weekend with exciting races! Here’s a look at the upcoming schedule:
After a long winter break, the action will finally resume with the season opener on March 4th. The 100-lap feature will be a battle between two familiar faces: Takuma Soga and Tommy Merriman will be in a duel for the lead while Danica Patrick is looking to rebound from a tough 2019 season!
The second race on March 11th will be the 100th running of the Silver Cup race and it will mark the first time that the event has been held in March. The last two weekends of the month will feature back-to-back-to-back NASCAR Whelen Western Challenge races. The season will come to an end on March 25th with the Icebreaker 400. The 13th annual edition of the race will be the last chance for fans to get their fix of stock car racing before the summer season starts in mid-April.
April will mark the return of the NASCAR Whelen Western Challenge Series as the first race is scheduled for April 2nd. It will also be the last chance for fans to get their fix of stock car racing before the summer season starts in mid-April. The last weekend of the month will feature the return of the Silver Cup race and this year it will be held at Eldora Speedway on April 26th. The second half of the month will feature back-to-back-to-back NASCAR Whelen Western Challenge races. This will most likely be the last hurrah for the series as well since NASCAR has stopped sanctioning late-model sports car racing. The season will come to an end on May 24th with the Ironman race, which is scheduled for the last weekend of the month.
May will mark the start of the summer season for the Lee County Speedway. It will begin with the marquee event, the Ironman race, which is scheduled for the last weekend of the month. The last weekend before the break will feature back-to-back-to-back NASCAR Whelen Western Challenge races. The month of June will bring some relief as there will be no major events scheduled after the weekend of June 11th. However, don’t expect the summer season to be a dull one as the NASCAR Whelen Western Challenge is set to run four times throughout the month. The season will come to an end on July 23rd with the Brickyard 400, which will serve as the first race of the 2021 season.
June will be a busy month for the Lee County Speedway with the first three weekends featuring two NASCAR Whelen Western Challenge races. The other weekends will be used to accommodate other events, including the Iceman Cometh bicycle race on June 4th, the North American Road Racing Championship round on June 11th, and the RUSH Classic car show on June 18th. The last weekend of the month will mark the end of the summer season and the beginning of the offseason for the track. The schedule for next year has not yet been released, but it’s safe to assume that there will be at least one major event every month apart from December.
July will mark the start of the new racing season. It will begin with the infamous Brickyard 400 on July 25th and it will run until August 30th. The first weekend of the month will feature the 45th running of the Silver Cup race and the second weekend will see the first of three NASCAR Whelen Western Challenge races. July will be an eventful month for the track. Apart from the Brickyard 400, there will also be the RUSH Classic car show on July 4th and the Icebreaker 400 on the 18th.
August will be a relaxed month for the track as there will be no major events scheduled aside from the annual Brickyard 400. The last three weekends of the month will feature two NASCAR Whelen Western Challenge races. The month will end with the 45th running of the Silver Cup race on August 31st.
September will be another relaxed month for the track as there will be no major events aside from the annual Brickyard 400. However, there will be some interesting things to watch out for as the NASCAR Whelen Western Challenge will be back with the season finale on September 28th. The last three weekends will feature two NASCAR Whelen Western Challenge races and the Ironman race. The month will end with the 100th running of the Ironman race on September 28th.
Which Car To Use?
If you’re new to motor racing and want to get into stock car racing, then the first thing you should do is figure out which car to use. There are several options readily available and depending on your budget, you may want to consider buying a used vehicle or leasing one. If you have the funds, then you should opt for a new one. The key point to making this decision is the condition of the car. If you’re planning on racing it on a regular basis, then it’s best to invest in a decent quality vehicle. This will significantly improve your chances of winning. If you’re on a budget, then you should opt for a pre-owned car as it will likely have been previously driven and it will save you both time and money. Remember that racing is a dangerous sport and you should only engage with it if you’re prepared to accept the risk. If you’re new to the sport and don’t know anyone who has raced before, then it may be a good idea to contact a local auto club or the NASCAR Whelen Western Challenge for assistance in selecting the right equipment. They will be able to provide advice on what cars to use and how to prepare them for racing.
