NASCAR unveils 2024 national series schedules

NASCAR unveiled the long-anticipated national series schedules for 2024.

In the NASCAR Cup Series, the playoffs will have two road courses and two drafting tracks for the first time ever.

Atlanta Motor Speedway and Watkins Glen International will open the playoffs September 8 and 15. The Bristol night race will close the Round of 16.

Then, after a stop at Kansas Speedway, Talladega Superspeedway and the Charlotte Roval will close the Round of 12 on October 6 and 13, respectively.

That means the regular season will end with the Southern 500, September 1 at Darlington Raceway. Meanwhile, NASCAR Championship Weekend will take place November 8-10, instead of the previously announced Nov. 1-3 weekend.

Atlanta previously hosted a playoff race from 2004-08, while Watkins Glen has never hosted a playoff race.

The spring Atlanta race will also move, replacing Auto Club Speedway as race two of the season.

The NASCAR Cup Series will go to Richmond Raceway for an Easter night race March 31. Meanwhile, the spring Bristol race, with the shift back to concrete, will occur March 17.

Richmond will also retain its second Cup Series race, set to run August 11. The race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway will slide to June 23.

As previously announced the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Oval and Iowa Speedway will join the NASCAR Cup Series schedule.

In the Xfinity Series, Road America will not return to the schedule for the first time since 2009. The second Talladega race will also return.

In Trucks, Bristol and Martinsville will each get a second date.

Meanwhile, Mid-Ohio will not return to the schedule, marking the first time NASCAR will not go there since 2012.
