On Wednesday, NASCAR released the 2023 schedules for the NASCAR National Series (NASCAR Cup, Xfinity and Craftsman Truck Series). The only changes to the NASCAR Cup Series schedule are the ones that have already been previously announced (Chicago Street Course and North Wilkesboro All-Star Race).

Texas Motor Speedway, as expected, will only carry one race on the schedule as it was replaced as the All-Star Race venue by North Wilkesboro.

The season will once again kick off with the exhibition event the Busch Light Clash at the LA Memorial Coliseum on Sunday, February 5th. The NASCAR Cup Series regular season will get underway with the Daytona 500 on Sunday, February 19th.
