Bristol Motor Speedway will host the Food City 500 on April 5, before an off weekend. The Last Great Coliseum will also host the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race as a playoff race on September 19.

Bristol Motor Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway road course, and Martinsville Speedway will host the Round of 16, Round of 12 and Round of 8 eliminations.
