2021 Schedule Set For NASCAR Camping World Truck Series
NASCAR has announced the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series 2021 schedule, which is highlighted by trips to traditional and new tracks alike, including a new battle in the dirt at an iconic NASCAR track and a second dirt contest at another storied – yet brand-new – venue.
The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will take to the dirt at Bristol Motor Speedway (March 27), joining the NASCAR Cup Series.
Then, on July 9, trucks will roll into Knoxville Raceway for the first time for what will be a highly anticipated contest on one of the most storied tracks in the country.
“The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series provides some of the most intense and entertaining competition in all of racing,” NASCAR Vice President of Racing Development Ben Kennedy said. “The 2021 iteration of the schedule will build upon that intensity through a wide variety of long-tenured race tracks and new venues like Knoxville Raceway. The variety of disciplines will increase the demand on drivers and culminate with a truly battle-tested champion at Phoenix.”
The Camping World Truck Series will kick off 16 national series tripleheader weekends in 2021, including at Circuit of the Americas (May 22) and Nashville Superspeedway (June 18). In addition, the Camping World Truck Series will return to fan-favorite Watkins Glen International for the first time since 2000 on August 7.
The series will also share the stage with the NASCAR Cup Series on Saturday, June 26 in Pocono as all three national series take part in the NASCAR Cup Series doubleheader weekend at the Tricky Triangle.
As was initially scheduled in 2020, World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway will return to host the start of the Playoffs (August 20). Two historic short tracks will determine which drivers continue their Playoffs run, as Bristol Motor Speedway (September 16) trims the field to eight and Martinsville Speedway (October 30) decides which four drivers will race for a championship at Phoenix Raceway (November 5).
