NASCAR cuts truck schedule from 25 to 22 races
NASCAR will reduce the number of races in the Camping World Truck Series from 25 to 22 for 2012.
The series will go to Rockingham Speedway for the first time and it added a second date at Iowa Speedway.

Nashville Superspeedway, which had two dates, has closed. The series also won’t return to Lucas Oil Raceway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Darlington Raceway.

NASCAR had explored going to other new venues. NASCAR Senior Vice President Steve O’Donnell indicated it will continue looking at them.

“Looking ahead, interest in the Truck Series continues to grow in a number of different markets and we’re excited about what the future holds for next season and beyond,” O’Donnell said in a news release.

In other changes, the Phoenix event was moved from the second race of the year to the next-to-last race in November, giving the track a tripleheader weekend in the fall.

Chicagoland Speedway moved its race to July for a Nationwide-Truck series doubleheader weekend.
