The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series announced on Tuesday that for the remainder of the 2020 season that practice and qualifying will not take place.
Starting positions will be determined by a pre race draw and in a statement released by NASCAR Senior Vice President of Competition Scott Miller said:
Following discussions with our race teams and the broader industry, NASCAR will continue to conduct its race weekends without practice and qualifying for the remainder of the 2020 season in all three national series. The current format has worked well in addressing several challenges during our return to racing. Most importantly, we have seen competitive racing week-to-week. NASCAR will adjust the starting lineup draw procedure for the Playoff races, and will announce the new process at a later date.”
