2021 ARCA Menards Series schedule features new venues
The 2021 ARCA Menards Series schedule features 20 races with a mix of superspeedways, road courses, short tracks and dirt tracks.
Once again the series will kick off at Daytona International Speedway in February and conclude at Kansas Speedway in October.
The series will feature two road course races in 2021, the first on June 4 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in conjunction with the track’s NASCAR Xfinity Series weekend, and the second at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International on Aug. 6, part of a quadruple-header with the NASCAR Trucks, Xfinity and Cup series.
Among the other highlights: The series will return to the Milwaukee Mile for the first time since 2007; Kansas will be the only venue to host two races, with its first event in May; and the series will see a stretch of four short track races in four weeks, starting at Elko Speedway and concluding at Winchester Speedway.
In addition, the race at Charlotte Motor Speedway and the season finale at Kansas are on a “flex schedule” and could be moved by a day.
The Sioux Chief Showdown, ARCA East and ARCA West schedules as well as the broadcast schedules will be released in the coming weeks.
