New to the schedule are Charlotte Motor Speedway, Homestead-Miami Speedway, Brainerd International Raceway, and Utah Motorsports Campus. The schedule also includes an unprecedented number of West Coast events starting with Auto Club Speedway in February. West Coast weekends will include a return — after a three-year hiatus — to Sonoma Raceway, WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, and Portland International Raceway. Most of the races will be live-streamed on the SVRA app.

Another feature of the schedule is its design to allow racers a single tow between tracks within the same region on successive weekends. “Single Tow” weekends begin in February with Sebring International Raceway and Homestead, in March with Charlotte and Road Atlanta, and then again between Laguna Seca and Sonoma in April.

“I could not be more pleased with how my team has risen to the challenges of 2020,” said SVRA CEO Tony Parella. “We navigated a gauntlet, and we are determined to deliver a new season and return to normal weekends as much as possible. So many of our fans have contacted us about attending our SpeedTour races, and we look forward to the day we can welcome them back at every venue.”

Notably missing from the expanded schedule is the Brickyard Invitational held since 2014 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Parella explains that he built the event around the Vintage Race of Champions (VROC), now on hold due to fan attendance uncertainty.

“We built the Brickyard Invitational around the Pro-Am racing,” said Parella. “Our first-ever Pro-Am occurred at IMS in 2014, and we need that element for the weekend to make sense. I will be regrouping with the IMS team in January to explore options for 2022.”
