      The 2019 NASCAR Cup Series season is still young — just six events into the 36-race campaign with the finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway still more than 230 days away — but it’s already time to start planning for next year. 

      NASCAR released the 2020 schedule on Tuesday, announcing a number of changes to the race calendar, which will start with The Clash at Daytona International Speedway on February 9 before the 62nd running of the Daytona 500 gets the regular season started a week later. 

      The biggest changes to the calendar include a new home for the championship weekend, a doubleheader at Pocono Raceway in June, Daytona hosting the regular-season finale and Darlington opening the playoffs.
