The 2021 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule was officially released on Thursday, and it will have a different feel than recent seasons.
Fans who were disappointed in the removal of Eldora Speedway from the schedule, will be relieved to hear that there will be two dirt races on the 2021 schedule.
The NCWTS will have one race at Bristol on the dirt layout and they will also visit the regular layout in the fall for the night race. The series will also visit the dirt track at Knoxville Speedway in July, as well. Watkins Glen has been added to the schedule, and as we already knew, the series will head to Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX as well as Nashville Superspeedway in June.
