NASCAR 2023 schedule: A first look at the Cup, Xfinity and Truck Series panels

Races have been previously announced at the new street track in downtown Chicago and back to The venerable North Wilkesboro Trail It will highlight the largely unchanged 2023 NASCAR Cup Series schedule when it is released later on Wednesday, the athlete Learn.

The 2023 Cup qualifiers will remain similar to this year’s edition, and there is one notable shift in history (the second Richmond race moves from August to July, the Indianapolis track race on the road moves from July to August).

When reviewing transcripts of all three national chains’ schedules (Cup, Xfinity, Truck), other items of interest include:

The final race on the two-mile layout at Auto Club Speedway in Southern California. NASCAR previously gave no indication of the schedule for converting the facility to a short track, but now says the February race will be the last race on the current track.

– Chicago Street Stadium and North Wilkesboro Highway are the new stadiums on the Cup schedule. Chicago hosts its first race on July 2, while the Pointsless All-Star Race will be held in North Wilkesboro on May 21.

The 10-race qualifiers have remained the same since 2022. The cut-off races (Bristol, Charlotte Roval and Martinsville) and the championship finish (Phoenix) remain the same.

– With Texas Motor Speedway losing the All-Star race, the track will host only one Cup race this weekend for the first time since 2004.

– The Martinsville Cup spring race shifts from Saturday night to Sunday afternoon.

The Xfinity Series will also race on the Chicago Street track. Previously, NASCAR reported that an unspecified IMSA class will serve as a backing series for the Cup this weekend.

– Although the Cup won’t return to Road America in 2023, Xfinity will continue to race on the popular Wisconsin track as it has since 2010. In all, there are eight road laps on the Xfinity schedule.

– Bristol shifts from closing the regular Xfinity season this year to the opening game in 2023. The regular season ends September 9 at Kansas Speedway.

Sonoma Racetrack will host the first-ever Xfinity Race on June 10. The truck series will not return to Sonoma in 2023.

– For the first time since 1996, North Wilkesboro will host the NASCAR Points Race when the Truck Series visits the legendary Short Track on May 20.

The Milwaukee Mile also returns to the truck schedule, hosting the first NASCAR Series national race since 2009.

– Bristol is the only dirt track on the Trucks stream, where the Knoxville Racecourse drops off.

All three series schedules are shown below, with qualifying races highlighted in green.
