DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Aug. 19, 2002) - The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) announced Monday the 2003 schedule for the NASCAR Busch Series, Grand National Division.
The NASCAR Busch Series - the nation's No. 2 motorsports series - will feature 34 races in 2003, a season that will begin Feb. 15 at Daytona International Speedway. The season will end Nov. 15 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
There are no changes from 2002, in terms of the number of races on the schedule. A significant alteration involves New Hampshire International Speedway and Gateway International Raceway in St. Louis swapping dates. Instead of racing at NHIS in May, the NASCAR Busch Series will join the NASCAR Winston Cup Series there in July (July 19). Gateway, which formerly had a July date, will switch to May 10.
The NASCAR Busch Series will visit 26 tracks in 22 states, in 2003.
