The 2021 NASCAR season features more right turns.

Road circuits are no longer a novelty in NASCAR racing, with the sport expanding competition on non-oval tracks for the 2021 season.

The 2021 Cup Series schedule includes seven road courses, with new stops at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas; Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin; and the road courses at famed Daytona International Raceway and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. These four join the existing road races at Sonoma, Watkins Glen, and Charlotte’s ROVAL.
