2022 NASCAR Schedule: NASCAR Cup Series

2022 NASCAR Cup Series Schedule

A look at every Cup series race in the season ahead

NASCAR's 36-race 2022 schedule will kick off as it traditionally does, down in Daytona but there are some new things fans can look forward to this season, starting with the first official event. The Cup Series will head west as the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum will host the "Busch Light Clash at The Coliseum" on Feb. 6, two weeks before the Daytona 500. Additionally, the series will hold its first race at World Wide Technology Raceway in Madison, Illinois, in early June while also returning to the Circuit of The Americas (March 27) and Nashville Superspeedway (June 26) in 2022. This season also marks the first for USA Network as a broadcast partner. USA Network is scheduled to air 11 races, joining FOX, NBC and FS1. 

Here's a look at the full 36-race schedule with names, track locations, TV information, and winners as the season progresses.
