The NASCAR 2021 schedule release will surely get racing fans talking — there are more road races, two regular tracks gone from the schedule entirely and. for the first time in the modern era, NASCAR will race on dirt.

Bristol Motor Speedway will play host to that dirt race on its oval March 28. After being rumored for weeks, NASCAR’s Wednesday schedule release is expected to make the dirt race official.
