The 2016 dates for the Sprint Cup Series spring events at Charlotte Motor Speedway and its only Kentucky Speedway race have been announced through each track’s website.

Charlotte’s website lists the Sprint All-Star race for May 21 and the Coca-Cola 600 on its traditional Memorial Day weekend date of May 29. The track doesn’t have a date listed for its fall race, which is part of the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Kentucky hosts the Quaker State 400 pres. by Advance Auto Parts on July 9, which lines up with its 2015 date on July 11.
