TULSA, Okla. – With a few old favorites, and several new venues lining the 2020 lineup, the first round of a scheduled 50-race slate has been released for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

“We’re looking forward to 2020. We have a lot of new tracks, and it’s great that we’ve been able to bring back some that we haven’t been too in a long time,” said ASCS National Scheduling Coordinator Terry Mattox. “Our goal is to get between 50-55 shows for these teams every year. That seems to be the magic number for this series, and also get some of our swings where they have more dates. I feel like we got that done, and with the TBAs that we have, we should be right where we need to be. We’re just ironing out a few final details.”

Starting the season on Feb. 28-29, the series returns to Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria, Ariz., for the first time since 2012 before moving to California for a trio of nights.
