The 2021 NASCAR Cup Series schedule was unveiled on Wednesday afternoon and for the first time in several seasons the schedule features many changes with multiple new tracks added.

 Circuit of the Americas (COTA) and Road America are a part of six scheduled road course events for the 2021 Cup Series season, a list that includes regular stops at Sonoma Raceway, Watkins Glen International and the Charlotte ROVAL. Indianapolis Motor Speedway will also transition to its road course track for the 2021 Cup Series event in a dual weekend with INDYCAR. The season-opening non-points Busch Clash will run on the Daytona International Speedway Road Course.

Bristol Motor Speedway has their traditional two dates, but this season – the spring race will be run on the dirt. It will be the first time the Cup Series has ran on the dirt in the modern era. Nashville Superspeedway will also make its debut in the NASCAR Cup Series as track owner, Dover International Speedway, will move one of its two dates to the Tennessee track.

Finally, the All-Star Race will see a new location for the second consecutive year. The race had traditionally been run as part of the Coca-Cola 600 festivities at Charlotte Motor Speedway before moving to Bristol this season. In 2021, Texas Motor Speedway will play host to the annual event.

The 2021 schedule for the NASCAR Xfinity Series and the newly-renamed NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is expected to be announced in the near future, along with the television schedule for the Cup Series across FOX Sports and NBC Sports.
