NASCAR Wednesday revealed their schedules for 2024 and the Southern 500 Labor Day weekend will serve as the final race of the Cup Series regular season instead of the opening race of the playoffs. The race is set for a 6:00 PM start on the USA Network. Darlington also will host an Xfinity Series race on that Saturday.

The spring races at Darlington will be the weekend of May 10-12 with all three series running on the Lady in Black. The Sunday race is scheduled for 3:00 PM on FS1.

The season will begin February 18th with the Daytona 500 and conclude November 10th at Phoenix Raceway. The All-Star Race will return to North Wilkesboro May 19th. The Cup Series will race for the first time on the 7/8-mile short track at Iowa Speedway on June 15th. They will run the Chicago Street Race again on July 7th, and there will not be a dirt race at Bristol in 2024.
