2021 NASCAR Xfinity Series Schedule Released

NASCAR has released the 2021 Xfinity Series schedule, with the 33-race trek revealed Oct. 30.

NASCAR’s second-tier series will again make 33 stops at various tracks across the country, beginning with the season opener at Daytona International Speedway on Feb. 13 before concluding at Phoenix Raceway on Nov. 6.

Included within the schedule is a brand new stop at Circuit of the Americas (May 22) and the series’ return to Nashville Superspeedway (June 19) for the first time since 2011.

After being scratched from the 2020 schedule due to issues related to COVID-19, the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course (June 5), Road America (July 3) and Watkins Glen International will all return to give the series some road course flare. The original first date at Martinsville Speedway (April 9) has also been re-added.

Mid-Ohio will be the lone stand-alone contest on the schedule.

The regular season will wrap up on Sept. 17 at Bristol Motor Speedway, while the postseason will again kick off at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sept. 25.

“As was the case with the Cup Series, we’re thrilled to have worked with the industry and our broadcast partners to deliver an exciting Xfinity Series schedule for our fans,” said Ben Kennedy, NASCAR vp of racing development. “We saw phenomenal Xfinity Series racing in 2020, and this schedule allows us to build on that momentum by adding compelling new venues to an already fantastic mix of traditional race tracks.”
