NASCAR Schedule Release Coming Later As Dates Are Finalized (Update)

UPDATE Adam Stern tweets that.@IMS was asked (by NASCAR) to move up the NASCAR weekend a few weeks in next year's schedule, and is also still mulling whether to move to a race on its road course.

05/11/17 The '18 NASCAR national-series schedule is not expected to be released this week, according to a source, as the sanctioning body finishes up final changes to next year’s slate.

NASCAR’s '17 schedule was released during the first week of May in '16, but sources said that the later release this year stems at least in part from a delay with Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which is still finalizing its date for '18.

IMS was asked to move up a few weeks, according to sources, but has yet to agree to the move and is also still mulling whether to move a race to its road course. Adam Stern/SBD
