This article is part of our NASCAR Draft Kit series.
Before we can fill out our cheat sheets or prepare our draft strategies for the 2020 NASCAR season, there are many changes we need to take into account to be prepared for any fantasy racing league. Let's take an in-depth look at some of these changes that we'll see and some that aren't so apparent when the engines fire up at Daytona in February.
Thanks to the usual silly season movement and free-agent driver signings, several drivers moved to new teams in 2020. A handful of teams shut down and some are starting new. A few teams merged or contracted to stay competitive. Also, a handful of driver/team swaps have taken place; among the most notable are the Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Chris Buescher team swaps, Paul Menard and David Ragan retirements and the multiple rookie driver promotions.
