Is there a NASCAR race this weekend?

There is a NASCAR race this weekend. But it will not include the top-tier drivers for the competition, the Cup Series, which kicks off this weekend.

Racing fans eager to take part in the Truck Series race at Knoxville Raceway in Iowa on Saturday, June 18, were able to race.

Those hoping to see the trophy series will have to wait for the weekend. The series is scheduled to resume on Sunday, June 26 with Ally 400 in Nashville.

Why is there no Cup Series race this weekend?

The simple answer is that the 2022 Cup season kicked off one week after the 2021 season. Presidents’ Day, which is celebrated on the third Monday in February, falls on February 21 this year – the latest date it could be.

That means the Daytona 500, which erected on February 15 of last year, was commissioned on February 20 of this year. The much-loved event kicks off the NASCAR Cup Series season and has been held on Presidents Day weekend for most of the past 50 years.

Despite the late start, the 2022 Cup season is still set to end on the first Sunday in November. Last year, all three levels of NASCAR (Cup, Xfinity and Truck) Taking two weeks off to attend the Tokyo Olympics.

All of your favorite Cup Series drivers will be back on the track June 26 at the Ally 400. Television coverage of the series travels from Fox and FS1 to NBC and USA Network between now and the end of the season.
