ARCA East & West Schedules Revealed

TOLEDO, Ohio — Next year’s ARCA Menards Series East and West schedules include a combined total of 20 races, eight for the East and 12 for the West.

The West season opener is set for March 8 at Phoenix Raceway, a combination race with the ARCA Menards Series, while the East season kicks off on March 23 at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida. 

The East will have five combination races with the ARCA Menards Series while the West will have one.  

The Highlights: 

• Stand-alone races for the East include stops at Five Flags Speedway, Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway, and for the second year in a row, Flat Rock Speedway. The race at Five Flags will run in conjunction with the ASA STARS National Tour. 

• The combination races for the East include Dover (Del.) Motor Speedway, Iowa Speedway, Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park, The Milwaukee Mile in Wisconsin, and Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway. 

• Tri-City Raceway in West Richland, Washington returns to the West schedule for the first time in 20 years; the 0.555-mile paved oval hosted nine races from 1968 through the most recent in 2003. 

• Three venues will host a pair of West races, with Irwindale Speedway and Kevin Harvick’s Kern Raceway joining Phoenix Raceway, which will once again host the season opener in March and the championship round in November. The season-opener at Phoenix will be a combination race with the ARCA Menards Series. 

• Back-to-back road course races are slated at Portland Int’l Raceway and Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway.
