DAYTONA BEACH, Florida (January 8, 2020) — In what was known previously as the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, now stands a new vision for sanctioning bodies’ eastern regional touring series. For 2020, the newly renamed ARCA Menards East Series will travel to eight venues featuring short tracks from Florida to New Hampshire.
For the seventh consecutive year, the East Series will begin its season during Speedweeks in New Smyrna Beach, Florida as part of the 54th Annual World Series of Stock Car Racing on February 10th.
From New Smyrna, the series travels up the road to the Florida Panhandle for a visit to Pensacola’s Five Flag Speedway on March 14th. Last year, the home of the Snowball Derby Super Late Model race played host to the ARCA Menards National Series, holding the Inaugural Pensacola 200. The event returns in 2020, same venue, same name, but this year as a part of the East Series.
On April 4th, the East Series tackles one of its mainstays, Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee and then hops over to Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville as part of a weekend of racing in the Music City that includes USAC, CRA Jegs Tour, and the Southern Super Series.
The East Series then heads north on May 16th to the former hometrack of ARCA, Toledo Speedway in Ohio.
Staying in the north, the East Series returns to Berlin Raceway in Marne, Michigan for a contest on July 25th.
On August 21st, the East Series will battle against Miles the Monster on the concrete of Dover International Speedway, a track that used to hold the series finale each year.
This year the series will conclude on September 12 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway where a champion will be crowned as a part of the Speedway’s Full Throttle Weekend.
