NASCAR has released more of their schedule, with the Cup, Xfinity, Gander Truck and ARCA races set until June 21. Last month NASCAR announced they would be returning to racing on May 17 at the Darlington Raceway, after pausing due to the coronavirus pandemic. Racing is one of the first sports to return during the pandemic.

Races will be carried out different than usual, with no fans present at the events. They will also have modified qualifying, practice and start positions to create the least exposure possible for all involved in the race.

Steve O'Donnell, NASCAR executive vice president and chief racing development officer said in the announcement:

"We are eager to expand our schedule while continuing to work closely with the local governments in each of the areas we will visit. We thank the many government officials for their guidance, as we share the same goal in our return – the safety for our competitors and the communities in which we race."

Take a look at the schedule released on Thursday:

NASCAR also announced that events at the Kansas Speedway, Michigan International Speedway, the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Mid-Ohio and the Gander Trucks Series race at Texas Motor Speedway are all postponed.

They also announced all all NASCAR national series races and the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour event at Iowa Speedway for the 2020 season are canceled.

Before the season paused, NASCAR only held four of the 36 scheduled Cup Series races.

The slow opening of states, with racetracks allowed to be open has made it possible for racing to return.
