THOMPSON, Conn. – Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park revealed a six-race NASCAR Weekly Series schedule for the upcoming season on Monday.

The upcoming slate consists of three major staple events, and three more events that will spotlight NASCAR Weekly Series competitors as part of mid-week, Wednesday night specials in the heart of the summer.

The season begins with the 46th annual Icebreaker weekend (April 4-5) and ends with the 58th annual Sunoco World Series of Speedway Racing, with three packed days, Oct. 9-11.

“We are pleased with the amount of support we are receiving from our dedicated race teams and drivers and we ready to go forward with our NASCAR Weekly Series program for the 2020 season,” said Terry Eames, General Manager of Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. “We are looking forward to six great events for our dedicated race fans.”

Thompson will continue to showcase five NASCAR Weekly Series divisions, starting with the Sunoco Modifieds. The Late Models follow as Division II, while the SK Light Modifieds (Division III), Limited Sportsman (Division IV) and Mini Stocks (Division V) complete the slate.

The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will headline the Icebreaker weekend, alongside all five NASCAR Weekly Series divisions. Following the Icebreaker, NASCAR Weekly Series teams return to action for their three, mid-week events on June 3, July 8 and Aug. 5.

The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour returns for the annual Bud King of Beers 150 on Wednesday, Aug. 19, before crowning their champion and helping to seal Thompson’s schedule as part of the 58th annual Sunoco World Series of Speedway Racing, Oct. 9-11.

Prior to the season, Thompson will host a NASCAR Test & Tune for all safe race cars on Saturday, March 21, with a rain date of March 28.
