NASCAR Expected To Release '21 Schedule Tomorrow

NASCAR is planning to release its entire ’21 schedule tomorrow, and it is expected to be a massive shakeup from this season. The sanctioning body had been considering just releasing the first dozen or so races of next season in recent weeks, but the announcement got delayed several times. The only new track that has already been announced as being on the schedule is Nashville Superspeedway, while THE DAILY previously reported that Road America in Wisconsin was in talks to get a Cup race and The Athletic reported last week that Circuit of The Americas was expected to get a race. Reasons for the delayed announcement included talks over the Bristol dirt race and talks over the number of one-day shows that will be held next year.

THE DAILY also reported last week that Homestead would move to the second position of the season on Feb. 21, and that Bristol Motor Speedway has been considering turning its spring race next year into a dirt track event. Other tracks that industry execs are keeping an eye on for possible changes announced tomorrow include Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which has been toying with the idea of moving the Brickyard 400 to its road course; Darlington and Atlanta. The schedule is expected to stay at 36 points races.
