    That's awesome. I've loved watching NASCAR do races in Nashville, and I'm glad to see racing action possibly going back.

    There are tons of other short tracks (or mile ovals) for future NASCAR Cup races.

    Iowa at first, Rockingham second, Memphis, Gateway, maybe Pikes Peak, Myrtle Beach, Thompson, Evergreen, South Boston, Hickory, Toledo, Greenville-Pickens, Mesa Marin.

    All of those from Myrtle Beach on don't have the infrastructure or the facilities to host the Cup series, trucks maybe, but I would love to see Iowa on the schedule and a return to the Rock as well as trying out gateway since they are putting a lot of money into their facility. Also, don't forget IRP (or what ever it is called now).

    THIS IS WHERE NASCAR FANS FAIL TO SEE THE BIG F'N PICTURE. .....ALL THESE TRACKS NEED TO BE ADDED TO THE TRUCK SCHEDULE FIRST, THEN XFINITY FOR ATLEAST 3 YEARS BEFORE EVEN THINKING CUP LOGIC. TRACKS NEED TO ENTER JUST LIKE MANUFACTURES AND DRIVERS DO..

    IOWA, Mid-Ohio, Rockingham, & Road America are the only ones in line to get a CUP date (rockingham is based on loosely having held Cup races)
    Memphis, Myrtle Beach, Nashville, Mansfield, Thompson, Pikes Peak, NJMP, NOLA, IRP, Birmingham, Evergreen, South Boston, Hickory, Toldeo, Pickens, Kern needs to be added to the Truck Schedule First. and Kansas, Chicagoland, 1 Texas race, & Charlotte needs to be removed from the Truck Series.
    The only tracks i can see that need to be added to Xfinity, would be Pikes Peak, Nashville, Memphis, IRP, & NJMP.

    With "future" I did not necessarily mean the year 2021 right now. The calendar would have to be completely revised anyway. I would say that apart from Daytona, Talladega, Bristol, Richmond and Martinsville, no racetrack should have more than 1 race per season in the Cup.

    The Spring Texas race I would give to COTA. The August race in Michigan I would instead drive in Road America. The Chase Kansas race should be scheduled to take place in Iowa.
    Charlotte can keep both races if the second race remains on the Roval. Otherwise I would relocate the autumn race to Rockingham. One of the two Pocono races, preferably the second, should be relocated to Mid-Ohio or Canada. One of the two Dover races, I would move to the Thompson Speedway in Connecticut sometime in the future. The race in Las Vegas should be season finale, but the Homestead race as penultimate race. The race in Phoenix I would lay in the summer and let go as a night race. Best back-to-back with Sonoma. For that I would take Pikes Peak into the Chase.
