In 2020, the race was run three times, including a doubleheader in July, due to the schedule changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.[7][8]

From 2001-2019, the race was one of a few on the Truck Series schedule to be 250 miles (Daytona, Talladega, Texas' 400km event). In 2020, the race was run three times with all of them being 200 miles due to the COVID-19 pandemic (it was slated for 250 miles). In 2021, the race distance was changed from 250 to 200 miles, keeping the distance from 2020.
