No big changes in 2014 Sprint Cup Series schedule

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — There were no surprises Tuesday when NASCAR revealed the 2014 Sprint Cup Series schedule because a date swap between Darlington and Kansas had already been announced by the respective tracks.

NASCAR did confirm that its track drying system Air Titan will be at all Sprint Cup events next season.

If any major changes are coming, it won’t happen until 2015. That’s when NBC takes over the final 20 races of the Cup schedule and NASCAR could have some flexibility with race dates.

The 2014 schedule has only two changes: Darlington and Kansas swapped spring dates, and Texas’ spring race went from a Saturday night event to Sunday to avoid a conflict with the NCAA men’s basketball Final Four in Dallas that weekend.
