The much-anticipated return of the SRX Racing Series is almost over. Tony Stewart and crew have put together another solid lineup of races set to being at Five Flags Speedway on June 18th, in beautiful Pensacola, FL. The schedule for the upcoming season will be listed below. Two of the races are return trips for the series. Stafford Motor Speedway and Nashville Fairgrounds get an encore race, but there are new tracks to conquer.
The list of drivers is still to be announced. Several drivers are back as regular fixtures in the series. Former NASCAR Cup Series Champions Tony Stewart, Bobby Labonte, and Bill Elliott are back for the entire season and joined by a cast of characters like Michael Waltrip and Helio Castroneves. Stewart is the defending SRX Series Champion, with Ernie Francis, Jr. being your runner-up. Francis, Jr. will have his chance to get the crown this year and repeat as a series winner.
The schedule, as mentioned earlier, has two repeat races from the 2021 Season. While the series is short, with only six races, the action makes up for it every week. Below are the tracks and dates of the upcoming races for the 2022 Season.
Five Flags Speedway June 18th, 2022
South Boston Speedway June 25th, 2022
Stafford Motor Speedway July 2nd, 2022
Nashville Fairgrounds July 9th, 2022
I-55 Raceway July 16th, 2022
Sharon Speedway July 23rd, 2022
I would have liked to have two more races, but the schedule is very sound for the type of racing and the type of cars that SRX has. Expect some NASCAR Drivers to make guest appearances as the season goes along, just like last season with Chase Elliott and Hailie Deegan. I’m pretty excited to see what changes were made from last season and what the racing will look like once again. Check back for more SRX Series articles. We will feature a driver spotlight every week leading up to the start of the season.
