The 2020 Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 was a NASCAR Cup Series race held on August 2, 2020 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire. Originally scheduled for July 19th, but postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Contested over 301 laps on the 1.058-mile (1.703 km) speedway, it was the 20th race of the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season.
New Hampshire Motor Speedway is a 1.058-mile (1.703 km) oval speedway located in Loudon, New Hampshire, which has hosted NASCAR racing annually since the early 1990s, as well as the longest-running motorcycle race in North America, the Loudon Classic. Nicknamed "The Magic Mile", the speedway is often converted into a 1.6-mile (2.6 km) road course, which includes much of the oval.
