As with the Cup and Xfinity Series, NASCAR made numerous changes to the Truck Series schedule for the 2020 season. Of note is the return of the series to Richmond Raceway after a 14 year hiatus, which comes at the expense of the spring Martinsville date. Martinsville in exchange was given an Xfinity Series race for the first time after a hiatus for 24 of the last 25 years (the exception being a single event in 2006), which will be run in the fall on the same weekend as the Cup and Truck Series races there. Also, this will be the first season that the season finale will be at ISM Raceway (Phoenix) while Homestead–Miami Speedway moves to March to become the fourth race of the season. Bristol is now the elimination race for the Round of 8 while the second Las Vegas race is the opener for the Round of 6 and Martinsville, now with only one date on the schedule, will end the Round of 6.
