NASCAR is restarting its season this Sunday, May 17th, after two months of inactivity due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Late last month, the organizing body announced four Cup Series races in ten days, with two at Darlington Raceway and two at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Now, we have another chunk of races added to the schedule, albeit with no fans in attendance.
On Thursday, NASCAR announced a schedule through the end of June between five different race tracks. Following the Darlington and Charlotte races, NASCAR will head to Bristol, Atlanta, Martinsville, Miami, and Talladega for five Cup Series races, five Xfinity Series races, two Gander Trucks races, and one ARCA race.
NASCAR will run a 400-miler at Darlington this Sunday, followed by a 500-kilometer race there on Wednesday. Memorial Day weekend Sunday, the annual Coca-Cola 600 will run in Charlotte, and that will be followed by another 500-kilometer race in Charlotte on Wednesday, May 27th.
