Earlier this week, NASCAR released the 2014 schedule for the Camping World Truck Series. A couple of tracks will return to the series next year -- Gateway Motorsports Park (formerly known as Gateway International Raceway) in Madison, Ill., and New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon.
Gateway is under different ownership now, and that track will host the series on June 14. The last race at Gateway for the Truck Series was in 2010.
"We're excited to have the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series return to Gateway and to the St. Louis area, which is such a racing hotbed," NASCAR Senior Vice President of Racing Operations Steve O'Donnell said. "Curtis Francois (new track owner) and his staff have worked diligently to bring NASCAr national series racing back to those great fans."
New Hampshire Motor Speedway last hosted the Truck Series in 2011. The 2014 return for the series to Loudon will be Sept. 20 as a companion weekend with the Sprint Cup Series.
The Gateway and New Hampshire races replace Rockingham (N.C.) Speedway and one race at Iowa Speedway in Newton. The trucks visited Iowa twice in 2013 but will only race there once next year.
As in 2013, the 2014 Camping World Truck Series season will be 22-races long. Returning to the schedule after successful 2013 debuts will be Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, and Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario.
