2021 NASCAR Big 3

I thought about this earlier today, starting a new thread for this b/c it's pretty ridiculously big news all around but just saw some other news. Mods, feel free to move some 21 discussion from the 20 thread, but whatever...a handful of us are in here?

Schedule for 2021 is a big swing for the fences, a hail mary, a half court shot (what other stick n ball sport analogies can be thrown at this?) I won't repeat my previous comments, just quote them below and throw the proposed schedule in a post, with the biggest news of the crazy changed schedule here: spring race at Bristol will be run on dirt!! Not sure how I missed this earlier as it's in the first paragraph of the article I posted; i was just looking for the below schedule! Walk a mile in my shoes...

Sorry, broad, saw just now that you noticed it too. Good stuff. They got me interested in Bristol again. I'll damn sure watch this and yes, Smoke will find his way in to that one for sure.

Also of note. They are taking an Olympic Break for the first time ever, there's a double header at Pocono, a race at the Nashville Superspeedway, which I thought was closed, Road America is on July 4th, the summer daytona race is in August and the All Star race is at Texas.

They're throwing the kitchen sink at this!

And took me a minute to find an article with the actual damn schedule!!
