NASCAR’s Diamond Anniversary Season Highlighted By New Venues in all Three Series

NASCAR 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 an exciting mix of history-rich venues, short tracks and road courses, with the sport reaching a new level of excitement with the already-announced Chicago Street Race – a bold, first-of-its-kind addition in a globally renowned city.

“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 schedules are a product of continued collaboration across our industry and partners. We are incredibly proud of what our sport will have to offer fans next season, and excited to celebrate this milestone season with the most diverse compilation of tracks in motorsports.”

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, Feb. 5 on FOX. Two weeks later, on Sunday, Feb. 19, the 65th annual DAYTONA 500 will unfold live on FOX from 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, Feb. 26) before visiting Las Vegas Motor Speedway (Sunday, Mar. 5) and Phoenix Raceway (Sunday, Mar. 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, Sept. 3), with the NASCAR Championship Race set for Phoenix Raceway on Sunday, Nov. 5.

As for the NASCAR Xfinity Series, a pair of road courses join the schedule for the first time in its four-decade history, as Names Will Be Made at Sonoma Raceway (June 10) and the Chicago Street Race (July 1). Bristol Motor Speedway will host the Xfinity Series Playoffs opener (Friday, Sept. 15) and the series will culminate with its championship race at Phoenix Raceway on Saturday, Nov. 4.

What’s old is new for the ‘Tough Trucks’ as CRAFTSMAN returns to the series, as does a race at the historic Milwaukee Mile. Trucks will make a return to the Milwaukee Mile Speedway for the second race of the Round of 10 on Sunday, August 27. The visit will mark the first time the Trucks have returned to Brew City since 2009.

In addition, the CRAFTSMAN Truck Series will get the festivities started on All-Star weekend when the trucks join the stars from the NASCAR Cup Series at the famed North Wilkesboro Speedway for the first time since 1996, on Saturday, May 20.

The CRAFTSMAN Truck Series Playoffs will get underway on Friday, Aug. 11 at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park, and like the Cup Series and Xfinity Series, will crown a champion at Phoenix Raceway (Friday, Nov. 3) for the fourth consecutive year.

2023 NASCAR Pinty’s

NASCAR Announces Pinty’s Series Schedule for Historic 2023 Season

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 17, 2023) – Building off one of the most successful seasons in NASCAR Pinty’s Series history, NASCAR today announced the 2023 schedule, featuring a record 14 races across Canada.

With the success of last year’s dirt debut race at Ohsweken Speedway, the track will return to the schedule as a double-header event on Monday, Aug. 14 and Tuesday, Aug. 15.

In addition, teams will make the journey back to Newfoundland and Labrador for another thrilling event at Eastbound International Speedway.

Altogether, the series will visit 11 different tracks in five provinces.

“The NASCAR Pinty’s Series has delivered great racing and exciting events across Canada for 16 years and next season will be our best one yet,” said Tony Spiteri, General Manager, NASCAR Canada. “Last year was an overwhelming success for everybody associated with the Pinty’s Series with increased interest from fans, competitors and potential partners. The 2023 schedule will continue to deliver the thrilling side-by-side racing that defines NASCAR and the Pinty’s Series.”

The season opens at Sunset Speedway (May 13) for the fourth consecutive year and concludes at Delaware Speedway (Sept. 24) where Marc-Antoine Camirand capped off a memorable season with his first NASCAR Pinty’s Series championship last September.

The series will once again boast the most diverse schedule in NASCAR with seven short-track oval races, five road course/street races and two dirt track races.

In 2023, the series will also celebrate its 200th race at Ohsweken Speedway with the start of the Tuesday race date.

Other highlights of the 2023 schedule include:

Fan-favourite street course events in Toronto and the 53rd annual Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières (GP3R). Kevin Lacroix won in Toronto this year, his second of three road course wins last season. Alex Guenette followed his GP3R win with a multi-year deal at Ed Hakonson Racing.
Two races at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP), including the traditional Victoria Day weekend race on Sunday, May 21. The second visit will be the season’s penultimate race on Sunday, Sept 3.
The mid-season Western Swing will bring three races to Alberta and Saskatchewan – one at Edmonton International Raceway and twin features at Sutherland Automotive Speedway (Saskatoon).
The 2022 season hit many milestones including a record-tying eight different winners, three first-time winners (aged 18, 26 and 29 at the time of their first win), and an average field size of 23.6 cars, the series’ highest count since 2013.

All 2023 races will air on TSN and RDS. Start times and complete broadcast and streaming schedules will be released at a later date.
