Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks
The 2016 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule is out and includes 23 events at 21 different tracks all across North America. The announcement on Tuesday also includes five-year sanctioning agreements to host the Camping World Truck Series through 2020, just like those revealed for the Sprint Cup and Xfinity series last month.
The schedule features slight changes, though the long downtime early in the season remains, as does the five-week stretch to close out the season from late Oct. through Nov.
Dover International Speedway will take place on May 13. Texas Motor Speedway’s summer race will move a week later to June 10. Gateway Motorsports Park will have its race two weekends later on June 25 and Canadian Motorsports Park will host its event Labor Day weekend (Sept. 4)
Additionally, Iowa Speedway will host its first ever companion weekend when the Truck and Xfinity series descend on the 0.875-mile oval June 18-19. Though there were reports that the series would return to Richmond International Raceway next season, that did not happen.
“For more than 20 years, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series has been home to some of the closest side-by-side racing in the sport, and we’re committed to delivering that to our fans for many years to come,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR executive vice president and chief racing development officer. “We expect that the stability of five-year agreements will benefit the entire industry, and anticipate the continuation of compelling NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship battles, like the one we’re watching unfold in 2015.”
FOX Sports will provide television coverage for every NCWTS event in 2016. FOX will televise nearly half of all Sprint Cup and Xfinity series races over the course of the season. These events can also be heard on the Motor Racing Network.
