2021 NASCAR Cup, Xfinity, Truck schedules


Work is underway at race shops preparing for 2021, and while it might seem that the new season is far away, February will be here soon enough with the scheduled openers for Truck, Xfinity and Cup at Daytona International Speedway.

The 2021 season features a new venue for NASCAR (Circuit of the Americas), a return to a track (Nashville Superspeedway) along with a new stop for Cup (Road America), and a familiar track hosting a dirt event for Cup and Trucks (Bristol). The Trucks also will race on the dirt at Knoxville Raceway, marking the series’ first visit to the Iowa track.
