*World Wide Technology Raceway announced that NASCAR will return in 2025, but no date was confirmed. The date marked is the same weekend as the first three years of this race, so, it seems likely the track could return to this date.

**The Chicago Street Race enters the third year of a three-year contract in 2025, and it is contractually obligated to be held on the first weekend of July.

***Doug Boles told Sirius XM NASCAR Radio that the Cup Series will return to he Indianapolis Motor Speedway Oval in 2025, but he did not rule out a return to the road course in the future. He said, “We haven’t announced it yet officially, but we will be back on the oval again next year, which I’m excited about. But, I think you’ll see some sort of roatation, in time, where we rotate between the two, but definitely something special about being on the oval.”

****The Southern 500 is traditionally held on Labor Day Weekend. While not officially confirmed, this date should not change, and this race could once again become the Playoff opener.

Rumors

MAJOR 2025 Schedule Update

Jordan Bianchi of The Athletic published an article on the 2025 NASCAR Cup Series schedule. In it, he discussed all of the hottest rumors on the 2025 schedule. Here are the highlights of what Bianchi had to say, for all the details, check out the article above.

  • International Racing: NASCAR is likely to race in Mexico during the regular season, but, Canada is “50-50” at best for now.
  • The Clash: Bianchi says The Clash will not return to the LA Coliseum, and the current favorite is an unlikely one, Bowman-Gray Stadium
  • Richmond Loses a Date: To make room for Mexico on the 2025 schedule, the most likely track to lose a date is currently Richmond.
  • Southern California: Despite Steve Phelps verbally committing to a race in Southern California earlier this season, Bianchi reports that a race in Southern California in 2025 is “Unlikely”.
  • All-Star Race: Bianchi reports that North Wilkesboro will retain the All-Star Race
  • Championship Venue: Bianchi reports that NASCAR will return to Phoenix Raceway for the 2025 Championship race, but, beyond that, Homestead-Miami is reportedly lobbying to get the finale back in 2026.
  • NO Racing on Easter Sunday: Bianchi reports that NASCAR will not race on Easter Sunday in 2025, unlike what NASCAR has done in recent years. Bob Pockrass also claims this is the most likely move to accommodate Amazon’s first NASCAR race being the Coca-Cola 600.
  • Regular Season Finale Back at Daytona: With the 2024 schedule having a two-week break for the Olympics, NASCAR moved the regular season finale back one week. This changed the Regular Season Finale date, but, NASCAR seems keen on changing the venue back for 2025.

COTA Should Return

There was some minor speculation amongst a few about the future. of NASCAR at COTA. Marcus Smith address that speculation over the weekend saying to Kevin Lyttle of Austin American-Statesman that SMI and NASCAR are “Planning” on returning to COTA in 2025. That was seemingly confirmed the following month as COTA is now taking renewals for NASCAR’s return in 2025.

Leaving the Roval?

Dale Earnhardt Jr. suggested on a recent episode of the Dale Jr Download that he believes Marcus Smith could drop the Roval. Many fans would love this change, as it would add another intermediate track to the 2025 schedule if they go back to the Charlotte Oval. However, Charlotte also announced some changes to the Roval for 2024, and it would be strange to move on from the Roval before seeing a race on the new configuration.

MAJOR Playoff Changes

Jordan Bianchi of The Athletic reported on “The Teardown” podcast following the New Hampshire race that three tracks will move out of the Playoffs in 2025 in favor of new ones. Atlanta (Already announced), Homestead-Miami, and Watkins Glen will move out of the Playoffs in favor of Darlington, New Hampshire, and Gateway.
