Didn't really expect @kals to actually lock the 2019 thread so here's the 2020 schedule.

Not a whole lot on the who-goes-where-front at the moment, though.

I want Pocono back, but at least it's roadie-oval-roadie-oval, so not all ovals go in one batch.

Hulkenberg wont be running in Indycar IN 2020..... he has already turned down an offer from McLaren to drive in their Indycar team.
"I have a lot of respect for those who race on ovals, it’s just not my thing," said the Hulk, after McLaren boss Zak Brown revealed the failed talks in Singapore.

Gotta say it, I'm not holding anything against Niko for stating that he's not interested in doing ovals.

I think Richmond can be good next year if they get two grooves working. Firestone knows that. They'll work towards that.

Well after Max Chilton decided he no longer liked the ovals, Nico probably sat up and took notice. I mean who wouldn’t take notice of Max Chilton?

11sec faster after 3 or 4 laps, just to poo on the taxis.

Would be interesting to see a race there.

Ericsson might be heading to Ganassi - in a 3rd car.

tl;dr: Ericsson's personal sponsors are still loaded.
