    Texas Motor Speedway will host the first Saturday night race on the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup schedule and again have twin IndyCar Series races on the same night.

    The track's 2012 racing schedule announced Tuesday night is very similar to this year because TMS president Eddie Gossage says fans liked the variety in the revamped slate this year.
