The choose rule tested at the All-Star race is now a permanent rule for all national series starting this weekend at Michigan. All tracks except Daytona, Talladega, and road courses will use the rule, which is essentially unchanged from the All-Star Race version, except for a few "subtleties" to handle free passes, wave-arounds, and full fields. Daytona and Talladega are excluded to minimize teamwork strategies, and road courses because "one to go" (when the choices are made) doesn't always happen at the start/finish line. In other news, beginning next weekend at the Daytona Road Course, starting lineups will no longer be set by random draws, but instead by a mathematical formula that considers finishing position in the previous race (50%), owner points (35%), and fastest lap in previous race (15%). With the introduction of this formula comes the return of the Busch Pole Award. Finally, the remainder of the 2020 schedule, including the playoffs, has been announced. Cup playoffs are unchanged from the original schedule, but Xfinity and trucks have been realigned to bring them closer to the Cup schedule, which eliminates Michigan and Mid-Ohio from the Xfinity schedule and Canadian Tire and Eldora from the trucks schedule.
