2014 Cup Schedule due out soon (Update)UPDATE The 2014 Sprint Cup schedule is being debated behind closed doors, and some quite interesting twists appear on the table at the moment. Just a few weeks ago it looked like NASCAR didn't plan any major, or even minor, changes for 2014. Now, however, word is things have, for some reason, changed. What NASCAR eventually does with next year's Cup calendar seems up for review, with few sacred cows. Don't make any hotel reservations, but here are some possible moves: -- Homestead might lose its spot as the season finale; -- Phoenix might gain the final spot on the 2014 tour; -- Sonoma could earn a spot in the playoffs, adding a California stop to the chase; -- Road America, that picturesque road course at Elkhart Lake, Wis., an hour north of Milwaukee, could get a slot in the 2014 Cup schedule (even though NASCAR's Brian France earlier this year said he planned no new tracks on the tour next season); -- how to fit a new track in the schedule? Dover could lose its late spring Cup weekend (keeping its early fall Cup date, in the chase), track boss Denis McGlynn, not unaccustomed to such speculation, would surely fight hard to keep both; -- and -- hold your horses -- Darlington might even get its traditional Labor Day weekend Southern 500 back; -- to fill that Mother's Day Saturday night slot, maybe a swap with Atlanta; Of course after all this debate NASCAR might simply decide not to make any changes for 2014.
