NASCAR has announced the remainder of the schedules for the NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series.

The Cup Series’ playoff schedule remains the same, beginning on Sept. 6 at Darlington Raceway with the Southern 500.

The Xfinity Series gained a regular-season race at Richmond Raceway and a playoff race at Talladega Superspeedway. Richmond and Talladega are realigned from events at Michigan International Speedway and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, respectively. Xfinity’s postponed event at Richmond from earlier in the season will also be part of the Richmond weekend, a doubleheader held Sept. 11-12.

The series will begin its playoff schedule at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The Truck Series schedule realigned the races at Eldora Speedway and Canadian Tire Motorsport Park to Kansas Speedway and Darlington, respectively. Darlington will host a Truck Series regular-season race, and Kansas will host the opening race of the Round of 8.

The series playoffs will begin at Bristol Motor Speedway on Sept. 17.

Additionally, the series will hold its postponed races at Richmond and Texas from earlier in the season on Sept. 12 and Oct. 25, respectively.

“The one fortunate part of this latter part of the season and the playoffs is we were able to keep the original tracks and dates intact when it came to the Cup Series, but definitely they have had to be flexible with integrating some of the other series into those events so that they had a good championship schedule as well,” Scott Miller, NASCAR svp of competition, said in a release. “It has been again, just like everything else, just a lot of great teamwork between the teams, NASCAR and the venues.”

NASCAR will determine if fans are allowed entrance to Cup races on a market-by-market basis, in accordance with local and state guidelines. The announcement did not specify if fans will be allowed to attend Xfinity or Truck series races.

    “Realignment.” A dirty word for people who remember how many tracks across all three series have been lost to that word in the name of supposed progress since Wilkesboro.
