NASCAR 2013 Schedule

NASCAR announced the Sprint Cup Series schedule for the 2013 season, a highly anticipated campaign that will welcome redesigned race cars to the track.

Though unveiled and tested throughout the 2012 season, the new models -- Chevrolet's SS, Ford's Fusion and Toyota's Camry -- will make their official entrance into Cup competition Feb. 16 with the preseason non-points Shootout at Daytona International Speedway. Qualifying for the "Great American Race" will take place on Feb. 17, followed by the season-opening 55th running of the Daytona 500 on Feb. 24.

"The new NASCAR Sprint Cup cars for next season have dominated fan conversation for more than a year, and the time is approaching to unleash them on the race track," Brian France, NASCAR chairman and CEO said.
