Stock Car Scoop: What Can NASCAR Expect From Next Gen at Gateway?

While the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series has visited World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway before, it’s a pair of firsts for NASCAR’s other two divisions: The Cup Series visits the aforementioned track for the first time, while the Xfinity Series travels to Oregon for a date with Portland International Raceway, a road course.
