ARCA Revises Schedule Through End of August

TOLEDO, Ohio – The Automobile Racing Club of America has solidified the balance of its schedule through August for the ARCA Menards Series, ARCA Menards Series East and ARCA Menards Series West, following NASCAR’S recent schedule update for the top three national tours.

The ARCA Menards Series will run a doubleheader at the sanctioning body’s hometown track in Toledo, Ohio, on July 31 and Aug. 1.

The following weekend, the ARCA Menards Series West will also do the double, starting with a Friday night, Aug. 7, visit to Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, Wash. That race will be followed by a Saturday night event six hours to the south at Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Ore., on Aug. 8.

The ARCA Menards Series West will finish its August run with a trip to Colorado National Speedway in Erie, Colorado, just outside of Denver on Aug. 22.

The races are to be carried live on TRACKPass on NBCSports Gold, followed by broadcast on NBCSN.

The sanctioning body also confirmed that the ARCA Menards Series East event originally scheduled for Friday, Aug. 21, at Dover International Speedway will run as scheduled.

The ARCA Menards Series will also be part of a companion event with the NASCAR Gander Trucks on Friday, July 24, at Kansas Speedway and with the NASCAR Cup Series on Sunday, Aug. 9, at Michigan International Speedway.

That sets the table for a historic weekend at Daytona International Speedway Aug. 14-16. The ARCA Menards Series will join the NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Gander Trucks for their first races on the storied 3.56-mile Daytona road course. The ARCA Menards Series race on Aug. 14 replaces ARCA’s first scheduled visit to Watkins Glen since 2001.

The ARCA Menards Series will close out the month of August at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway, which was originally slated for Aug. 2. The ARCA Menards Series will compete on Saturday evening, Aug. 29, with the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Series and the NTT INDYCAR SERIES running on Sunday, Aug. 30.

Both races at Toledo, the race on the Daytona road course and the race at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway will also be part of the Sioux Chief Showdown, a 10-race series-within-a-series that brings together the best of the ARCA Menards Series and the ARCA Menards Series East and West.
