2019 NASCAR Cup calendar revealed – NASCAR


The NASCAR Cup series has released its 2019 calendar.

Its dates are almost identical to last year’s calendar, with a minor change coming as the Easter break takes place on April 20-21 next year.

It means that the season will open with the Daytona 500 on February 17 and end at Homestead-Miami on November 17. The playoffs will again start at Las Vegas on Sept 15.

As per last year, the 36-race season will have three off weekends in 2019.

NASCAR’s calendar has come under criticism in 2018 with Kevin Harvick notably calling the repeated finale at Homestead “stale.”

The series does not typically make wholesale changes to its calendar season-by-season, although for 2018 it did add Charlotte’s ‘roval’ layout, because it signed five-year contracts with its circuits in 2015.

Further stumbling blocks to a calendar revamp include NASCAR having to have the track owner’s consent to move a race beyond a couple of weeks from its current date.
