Texas Motor Speedway announced its 25th season schedule for 2021.
The remake of the traditional TMS schedule includes moving the fall NASCAR playoffs doubleheader one week earlier in October and Racing's Fastest Doubleheader NTT INDYCAR SERIES weekend in early May.
"If everything is bigger in Texas, 2021 will be the biggest year ever for NASCAR in the Lone Star State with the addition of the NASCAR All-Star Race," said Speedway Motorsports President and CEO Marcus Smith.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The 2021 NASCAR All-Star Race, scheduled for June 14, marks the third time the event has been run at a facility other than Charlotte Motor Speedway, joining Atlanta Motor Speedway, which hosted the event in 1986, and Bristol Motor Speedway, which hosted the event in 2020.

"Marcus Smith, Eddie Gossage and their team always put on a first-class show for the fans in Texas, so we're looking forward to what this unique event has in store at another first-time track for the NASCAR All-Star Race," O'Donnell went on to say.
