Not only will Kansas Speedway feature two NASCAR Cup Series races in 2022, it will also hold a new slot in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.
The 2022 Hollywood Casino 400 on Sunday, Sept. 11, will be the second race in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs and the penultimate race in the Round of 16. The series will also visit the 1.5-mile asphalt oval on Sunday, May 15, once again providing fans two great opportunities to see the sport’s top stars at the crown jewel of Wyandotte County.
“Kansas Speedway is one of the most challenging tracks for NASCAR’s greatest drivers, which continues to make it a fan favorite on the NASCAR Cup Series schedule,” said Kansas Speedway President Pat Warren. “And continuing to hold a prestigious slot in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs just adds to the intensity our fans enjoy at our track.”
We’re now five weeks away from that intensity being on full display again in the 2021 version of the Hollywood Casino 400 on Oct. 24. The action begins at 2 p.m., as fans will witness the sport’s elite vying for a spot in the Championship 4 following a pre-race concert by multiplatinum recording artist Mitchell Tenpenny.
On Saturday, Oct. 23, a power-packed doubleheader awaits, beginning with the Kansas Lottery 300 at 2 p.m., the second race of the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs’ Round of 8. At 6 p.m. CT, the ARCA Menards Series championship will be decided in the Reese’s 150.
