2018 Nascar Schedule Released

Post by AntmanB on Tue May 23, 2017 6:49 pm


Major Notes:
-Indy will be the Regular Season Finale
- Las Vegas will have a second race, Replacing NHIS and will be the Chase Opener
- Richmond is now in the Chase, Chicago moves back to regular season, basically where is was before 2011 except before Daytona as opposed to After.
- Both Rchmond Races will be night races, and Fall Charlotte will be run on the Infield Road Course for both Cup and Xfinity.

The setups are going to be interesting. Hopefully it doesn't turn into an RIP tires event.

It's nice to see a road course chase race finally, Roval or not, It'll be pretty interesting to see.

If this goes well I hope we get a few more Roval races on tracks that aren't too exciting, like Indy for example.

Awesome! Very Happy I'm sure that I'm not the only one who's ever wondered why NASCAR hasn't tried racing on the infield of one of its ovals. It's great to see that Charlotte's is getting a chance!

I think that the track doesn't look nearly as good on paper as it does in actual footage. The layout is condensed like one would expect of a roval, but the racing surface is fairly wide and the switchbacks actually have noticeable banking. As far as infield circuits go, it looks pretty good to me! Although I wonder if they will consider moving the start/finish line; I personally think that a finish line should never be in a braking zone.

But I don't mean to be too skeptical of what is a very interesting and well-received idea. To me it doesn't seem like NASCAR to try something like this so I'm glad that they're giving it a go. I can't wait to see the race and I really hope that it's a success!

After seeing the video of the Charlotte ROVAL, I'm so looking forward to that one next year.

Hey look at that. 900th post.
