NASCAR BUSCH SERIES 2007 SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Oct. 2, 2006) -- The 26th season of NASCAR Busch Series competition will begin on Saturday, Feb. 17 at Daytona International Speedway, include two international stops, and end Saturday, Nov. 17 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The 2007 schedule features a second international event on Aug. 4 at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve road course in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. For a third consecutive year, the schedule also includes a race at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez road course in Mexico City, Mexico on March 4.

The NASCAR Busch Series is scheduled for 26 combination events with the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series in 2007. The NASCAR Busch Series will race together with the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series twice. There are 26 race tracks on the current schedule divided among 21 states, Canada and Mexico.

There will be eight NASCAR Busch Series "stand-alone" events: Mexico City (March 4), Nashville (April 7 and June 9), Kentucky (June 16), Milwaukee (June 23), Indianapolis (July 28), Montreal and Memphis (Oct. 27).

The 2007 schedule contains some changes in the order of events from 2006:

In April, Nashville Superspeedway's race will precede Texas Motor Speedway's event (April 14), a change necessitated by where Easter Sunday falls on the calendar. (The Texas weekend also features a Sunday NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series event.)

The order of a six-week midsummer string of events has also been altered. In 2007, New Hampshire International Speedway will have a June 30 race, followed on the schedule by Daytona (July 6), Chicagoland Speedway (July 14), Gateway International Raceway near St. Louis (July 21), O'Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis and Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. The 2006 schedule had a Daytona-Chicago-New Hampshire-Martinsville-St. Louis-Indianapolis order.
