The 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series SpeedyCash.com 400, originally scheduled for June 5 at Texas Motor Speedway, has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will be rescheduled by NASCAR for later in the year.
"NASCAR's announcement confirms that we plan to run all of the races on Texas Motor Speedway's 2020 schedule," said Eddie Gossage, President and General Manager of Texas Motor Speedway.

Our 24th season of racing may yet be our best ever."
