TOLEDO, Ohio — ARCA Racing Series officials unveiled the season schedule for the 2015 season on Wednesday morning.

The series will visit 18 different race circuits across 20 race weekends in an eight-month season with the season kicking off at Daytona International Speedway on February 14th and ending at Kansas Speedway on October 16th.

New to the series for 2015 are races at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville and Iowa Speedway – two tracks that the series has raced at in past years. Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville makes its return to the ARCA Racing Series calendar after a 22-year hiatus and Iowa Speedway will return to the calendar after a brief one-year hiatus.

Tracks that are not returning to the series schedule after holding races in 2014 are Elko Speedway and Madison International Speedway.

The makeup of the 2015 calendar consists of one road course event, two dirt track events, nine paved short track events, and eight events on tracks that are considered superspeedways.

The television schedule for the 2015 season has yet to be released. In 2014, 13 of the 20 races on the calendar were broadcast on television with CBS Sports Network, FOX Sports 1, and FOX Sports 2 carrying live coverage.

The ARCA Racing Series’ President, Ron Drager, issued a statement accompanying the release of the 2015 schedule on arcaracing.com.

“We’re proud of the diversity of the track configurations, the tradition inherent in the venues, and the markets represented by the 2015 schedule,” Drager stated. “Maintaining the 20-race schedule is important to the team owners and our marketing partners, and we appreciate the opportunity to share the track with so many great racing series on any given weekend.

“We feel our schedule is unique in motorsports, and provides a challenging platform for race teams and an exciting, compelling showcase for race fans.”
