2022 NASCAR Daytona 500 Speedweeks schedule released

The 64th running of the Daytona 500 will take place on February 20th, 2022 with a packed week of on-track action preceding it.

Following the inaugural running of The Busch Light Clash at The Los Angeles Coliseum, NASCAR will return to the 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway for its biggest race of the year.

With six races across four divisions and nearly a dozen other on-track sessions, there will be no shortage of action next month as Kyle Larson begins his Cup Series title defense.

Michael McDowell and Front Row Motorsports enter as the defending winners of the Daytona 500 after their dramatic upset victory in the 63rd running.

Additionally, there will be a lot to learn in the week leading up to the event, which will serve as the first official points race with the new Next-Gen race car.
