ARCA Series Racing Returns June 20th at Talladega

The ARCA Menards Series will resume its 2020 schedule with a return to the race track at Talladega Superspeedway.

The General Tire 200 at Talladega will run on Saturday, June 20, at 2 p.m. ET, and air live on FS1.

“Talladega Superspeedway holds a unique and special place in ARCA’s history, and we are eager for the ARCA Menards Series to return to action on June 20 at Talladega,” said ARCA Racing President Ron Drager. “We will continue to work closely with the industry to ensure a safe return to racing, and we look forward to sharing the return dates for the ARCA Menards Series East and ARCA Menards Series West in the coming days.”

The General Tire 200 was originally scheduled for Friday, May 22, but was postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

All ARCA Menards Series, ARCA Menards Series East and West races through May 21, have postponed as series officials continue to work with tracks and local government officials to determine new race dates.

The ARCA Menards Series continues working on rescheduling races slated for Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Michigan International Speedway and Chicagoland Speedway in June. The ARCA Menards Series event at Iowa Speedway remains scheduled for July 18, as part of the NTT IndyCar Series weekend.

Michael Self won the season opener at Daytona International Speedway on Feb. 8, and Chandler Smith picked up the win at Phoenix Raceway on March 6. Self leads Hailie Deegan by 12 points in the championship.

Sam Mayer won both the ARCA Menard Series East and West openers, at Florida’s New Smyrna Speedway and The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, respectively.
