For the first time in nearly two decades, the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series finale will not take place at Homestead-Miami Speedway, the racing league announced Tuesday.

The 1.5-mile track in South Miami-Dade County is still scheduled to host this year’s finale, capping off an 18-year run as the home of NASCAR championships. Next year, racers will visit Homestead early in the regular season of the NASCAR Cup Series, on March 22, giving the speedway a spring spectacle.

The finale will be moved to ISM Raceway in Phoenix.

“Ralph Sanchez’s vision for our track more than 25 years ago was to host spring racing and be a major part of South Florida’s March calendar,” said Homestead-Miami Speedway President Matthew Becherer in a statement. “Miami has historically hosted many popular events during March, including the Miami Open, the Florida Derby, Ultra and the Calle Ocho Music Festival, among others, and this move will integrate us into this impressive mix.
