NASCAR reveals 2023 Cup, Xfinity, Truck schedules

Jeff Burton and Dustin Long react to Kyle Busch's decision to leave Joe Gibbs Racing for Richard Childress Racing in 2023, what it means for Tyler Reddick, and the likelihood of Ty Gibbs filling JGR's open seat.

NASCAR released its 2023 Cup, Xfinity and Craftsman Truck Series schedules on Wednesday.

Changes that had not been announced before today:

  • The Feb. 26 race at Auto Club Speedway will be the final event on the 2-mile track before the speedway is reconfigured into a short track.
  • The Martinsville spring race moves from a Saturday night to Sunday afternoon.
  • The second Richmond race will move from August to July 30. The Indianapolis road course event will move from July to August 13.

The 10 playoff races are unchanged for 2023.

The Cup season begins with the Clash at the Coliseum exhibition race for the second consecutive year. That event will be Feb. 5, 2023.

The Daytona 500 will be Feb. 19, 2023

The All-Star Race moves to North Wilkesboro Speedway and will be May 21, 2023. That race was at Texas Motor Speedway this year. Texas will host only one race in 2023.

The series will race on the streets of Chicago for the first time on July 2, 2023.

The Cup season ends at Phoenix Raceway on Nov. 5, 2023.

The Xfinity Series will race on the streets of Chicago. Previously, only the Cup and an IMSA race had been announced. The series also will race at Sonoma for the first time. The Xfinity Series will be back at Road America, which lost its Cup date for 2023.

The Xfinity playoffs will begin at Bristol in 2023. It marks the final race of the regular season this year.

The Truck Series will race at North Wilkesboro on May 20, 2023. The series will return to the Milwaukee Mile. Bristol will be the only dirt track on the Truck schedule. The series raced on dirt at Bristol and Knoxville Raceway this season.
