The final ARCA Racing Series schedule as we know it was released on Wednesday by the sanctioning body.
ARCA was purchased by NASCAR back in May and the 2019 season will serve as its final campaign as an independent entity before NASCAR takes over in 2020. This schedule includes 20 races at 18 different tracks in 13 states.
It begins at Daytona International Speedway in February and concludes at Kansas Speedway in October.
The ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards 2019 schedule has been released and includes 20 races at 18 different race tracks in 13 states, starting with the season-opener at Daytona International Speedway in February and concluding with the finale at Kansas Speedway in October
Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida will return to the schedule for the first time since 1992. The Gulf Coast track is the home to the Snowball Derby Super Late Model race each December. There are two races at Pocono Raceway and Salem Speedway respectively.
The race at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville will now take place in May.
The series will also make its 77th visit to its home track, Toledo Speedway, and continue to race on the two dirt miles at Springfield and DuQuoin.
Starting in 2020, ARCA will become the ARCA Elite Tour and will be part of the Stock Car Invitational — a series of 10 events that includes the top teams from ARCA and the K&N Pro Series. The complete details of the Stock Car Invitational should be revealed by the summer.
Each of the series’ 20 events will be televised on either Fox Sports 1 or MAVTV. The complete television schedule will be released at a later date. The complete 2019 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards schedule can be found below.
