E-Racing simulation of Daytona by NASCAR earlier this year. It sure looks like racing – except for the smells, tire screeching and the roar of the crowd.

NASCAR said today that due to challenges resulting from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the need for significant advance planning, NASCAR will drop two race weekends immediately following the 63rd running of the DAYTONA 500 on Sunday 14 February. All three NASCAR national series will now remain in Daytona to run twice more on Feb. 19-21 before the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series to Homestead-Miami Speedway on Feb. 27-28.

The NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series races on the Daytona road course replace events originally scheduled to take place at Auto Club Speedway on Feb. 27-28; The Camping World Truck Series race is moved from venue originally scheduled to take place at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Friday 19 Feb.

Following the races at Homestead-Miami Speedway, the NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will all head – so far – to Las Vegas Motor Speedway as originally planned 5-7 March 2021.
