Toledo, Ohio (August 18, 2020) – The Automobile Racing Club of America has adjusted its Labor Day weekend schedule for both the ARCA Menards Series and the ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS, which now includes a unique ARCA weekend doubleheader at Lebanon I-44 Speedway in Lebanon, Missouri. The weekend opens with the ARCA Menards Series on Saturday night and closes with the ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS on Sunday, an event relocated from Winchester Speedway in Indiana.
The adjustment moves the race originally scheduled for August 7 at Wisconsin’s Madison International Speedway to Saturday, September 5 at Lebanon I-44 Speedway. The race at DuQuoin State Fairgrounds, which was originally slated for Labor Day weekend, has been postponed.

The schedule for the day includes practice for both the ARCA Menards Series and ARCA/CRA Super Series, ARCA Menards Series General Tire Pole Qualifying, and the green flag for the night’s 200-lap main event at 9 pm ET/8 pm CT. The race will be televised live flag-to-flag on MAVTV and streamed live on TrackPass on NBC Sports Gold.
