Big changes coming to 2018 NASCAR Cup schedule
 Nascar Series 
Posted by:  Bob Barney-RaceRap.com on May 19, 2017 at 8:16am

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series schedule is expected to see several changes next season, including new tracks to host the cut-off race to the playoffs and the playoff opener, Motorsport.com has learned.

The official 2018 NASCAR national series schedules should be released sometime next week, sources said.

The proposed schedule has undergone several revisions over the past several weeks but barring last-minute alterations, the following changes appear set to take effect next season:

The second Cup date at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, which Speedway Motorsports Inc. moved from New Hampshire Motor Speedway, will serve as the kickoff race to the Cup series playoffs, replacing Chicagoland Speedway.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which has traditionally hosted its lone Cup event in late July, will become the 26th race of the Cup season and the last chance for drivers to win their way into the playoffs.

Richmond International Raceway, which has hosted the 26th race since the playoff format debuted in 2004, will become one of the 10 playoff races, adding a second short track to the 10-race run to the championship.

Chicagoland Speedway, which has traditionally kicked off the playoffs, will likely move into the regular season.

The schedule changes came as a result of what some participants in the discussions called “unparalleled” cooperation and collaboration among NASCAR, SMI and International Speedway Corp.

Officials with both the Richmond and Las Vegas tracks declined comment on the proposed changes.

NASCAR issued the following statement Thursday night to Motorsport.com: “NASCAR and our industry partners are working very closely to finalize a 2018 schedule that will deliver great racing to our fans. We look forward to sharing it soon.”
