KANSAS CITY, Kan. (SEPT. 29, 2021) – NASCAR announced today that the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will visit Kansas Speedway twice next season, creating an exciting quadruple-header weekend of racing action Sept. 9-11, 2022.
The trucks and the ARCA Menards Series will first visit Kansas on Saturday, May 14, one day before the NASCAR Cup Series race on Sunday, May 15. Their second visit on Friday, Sept. 9, will be the final race of the opening round of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs, eliminating four drivers from championship contention.
