NASCAR Announces 2023 Schedules for all Three National Touring Series

NASCAR has announced the 2023 schedules for the NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, and NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series. During the organization’s 75th anniversary season, NASCAR’s national series will visit a mix of history-rich venues, short tracks, and road courses, including the already announced Chicago Street Race (overseen by Phoenix Raceway President Julie Giese).

“As we prepare to celebrate our 75th anniversary season, we are committed to delivering a schedule that acknowledges the deep history and tradition of our sport while establishing a bold future that brings the best racing in the world to new markets and new fans,” said Ben Kennedy, NASCAR Senior Vice President of Racing Development and Strategy. 

The 2023 Cup season will get underway with “round two” of the Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum, which will take place in East Coast primetime on Sunday, February 5. Two weeks later, on Sunday, February 19, will be the 65th annual DAYTONA 500 at Daytona International Speedway.

Additional highlights to the NASCAR Cup Series schedule include:

  • NASCAR will head west for the final race on the two-mile version of Auto Club Speedway (Sunday, February 26) before visiting Las Vegas Motor Speedway (Sunday, March 5) and Phoenix Raceway (Sunday, March 12). 
  • As previously announced, NASCAR’s annual All-Star Race (Sunday, May 21) will be hosted by North Wilkesboro Speedway—the first time the track will welcome the Cup Series since 1996.
  • The NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs will once again begin at Darlington Raceway (Sunday, September 3), with the NASCAR Championship Race set for Phoenix Raceway on Sunday, November 5.
