It's stupid fast when the sprint cars raced there, Bristol is a hell of a dirt track for stuff like that, it's a little too fast honestly.
The food truck business is gonna be very happy because the last time I was there they had no concessions. I wonder if they will add seats and how they will deal with ingress-egress? I guess if they could make Wilkesboro work they can do it here
Iowa is great. Just worried about what its proximity to the Indy weekend does.I'm fine with it, Iowa should be fun with an intermediate package. The Olympics is a wrench in everything due to the fact it takes priority. I expect '25 to be more interesting.
I remember in the early part of the summer, some crazy number of Cup races were rumored with like 37 races and a few mid week night races.Iowa is great. Just worried about what its proximity to the Indy weekend does.
Not as many changes to the Xfinity and Truck schedules as rumored either.
If it had been me, this is how I would have done the early part of the schedule:
2/18 - Daytona 500
2/25 - Las Vegas
3/3 - Phoenix
3/10 - Texas
3/17 - Atlanta
3/24 - COTA
3/31 - Richmond
4/7 - Bristol
4/14 - Martinsville...
Atlanta right after the 500 is dumb because it's the same style of racing and it's still plenty cold in Atlanta late February (see previous seasons when AMS was second).
They added a week to the calendar rather than make Richmond double up with a midweek race.I remember in the early part of the summer, some crazy number of Cup races were rumored with like 37 races and a few mid week night races.
Not exactly a radical re-imagining. Watkins Glen in mid-September is probably going to be really attractive, but I also recoil in horror at the thought of how expensive hotel rooms will be in the region.

Lee Spencer said they may go to 40 or 42 races. I think that was probably all a nonstarter until the 2025 TV deal is in place and the additional money is secured.
