The 2010 NASCAR Camping World Series West schedule, highlighted by two visits to Phoenix International Raceway – including the championship season finale -- was announced today by NASCAR.
The 12-race schedule, with stops at 10 venues in seven states, also features a first-time visit by the series to the high-banked oval of Montana Raceway Park in Kalispell, Mont., on Aug. 7.
The season finale on Nov. 11 at Phoenix will be part of the big NASCAR week at PIR that includes the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the NASCAR Nationwide Series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The NASCAR Camping World Series West makes its first visit of the year to Phoenix on April 8, for a companion event also with the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and the NASCAR Nationwide Series.
“The NASCAR Camping World Series West continues to visit key markets and top race tracks throughout the western United States,” said George Silbermann, NASCAR Managing Director of Racing Operations. “The 2010 calendar should make for another exciting season of tough competition,culminated by crowning our series champion at Phoenix in November.”
The schedule will once again include the annual combination race between the NASCAR Camping World Series East and West at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa on May, 23. Past winners of the prestigious event include Kyle Busch in 2009; Brian Ickler in 2008; and Joey Logano in 2007. The event has also attracted NASCAR Sprint Cup Series standouts Kevin Harvick and Kasey Kahne.
Also in 2010, the NASCAR Camping World Series West will make its annual visit to Infineon Raceway on June 19 during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend at the 1.99-mile road course in Sonoma, Calif.
