NASCAR'S 2014 Sprint Cup tour is finally starting to take shape, it appears, with Darlington Raceway officially announcing its Southern 500 again on Mother's Day weekend Saturday, May 10th.
Atlanta Motor Speedway is also announcing its 2014 Sprint Cup race date, Sunday, August 31.
And Texas Motor Speedway appears ready to announce its 2014 Cup dates too this weekend. Track boss Eddie Gossage says he'll reveal his 2014 dates Monday evening.
"We have made some big announcements in the past, but this one surpasses them all," Gossage said. "There are so many exciting new things in store for 2014 that fans will want to be sure and tune in."
Here is ticket info on the Southern 500 next spring.
NASCAR's 2014 tour calendar has been the subject of debate the past few weeks, because it's been late in release.
The sanctioning body traditionally lets each track announce its Sprint Cup date before releasing the full schedule.
