(CLEVELAND, OH) The 2021 ASRS Development Series Schedule was announced today. The Development Series, which features the Homenet Hosting Truck Series and Grand National Series will race 20 races in each series for a combined total of 40 races. The 2021 Schedule includes many changes from the 2020 schedules.
For the Grand National Series, the focus on road courses will continue with three road course races schedule including an inaugural stop at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course. Pocono Raceway, Dover International Speedway and tentatively Nashville Superspeedway also join the series as new tracks for 2021, replacing Martinsville Speedway, Watkins Glen, the Charlotte Roval and Texas Motor Speedway.
The Homenet Hosting Truck Series places bigger emphasis on smaller tracks including new stops at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis, Rockingham Speedway, Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway and tentatively Nashville Superspeedway. The additions to the Truck Series come at the expense of Kentucky Speedway, Kansas Speedway, Darlington Raceway and Charlotte Motor Speedway. The series is tentatively scheduled to race on the dirt twice in 2021 with the annual event at Eldora Speedway being joined by a brand new event at Bristol Motor Speedway, pending iRacing release in time for the schedule event.
“What our team has put together is one of the most diverse and well rounded schedule in all of esports racing with events that flow from one to another with differing track lengths and layouts throughout the season” said ASRS President Jim Foose. “On the Homenet Hosting Truck Series schedule we took out many of the 1.5 mile tracks that have dominated the schedule over the past few years and replaced them with former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series tracks like Rockingham, Milwaukee, Lucas Oil and the Nashville Fairgrounds. The Playoffs now feature a mix of everything the drivers race on throughout the season with the Homenet Hosting Trucks racing on dirt in the Playoffs and the Grand National Series hitting the Road Course at Indianapolis in their Playoffs”.
In total the Homenet Hosting Truck Series will feature eight “stand alone” events, those races hosted at tracks not hosting the Grand National Series or Hacksaw PC’s Premier Cup Series in 2021, the Grand National Series will host three “stand alone” events.
