Next year's Sprint Cup schedule released

On Tuesday, NASCAR released the 2013 Sprint Cup schedule. Like in previous years, the docket will include 36 points-paying events, as well as exhibition events like the Budweiser Shootout and Sprint All-Star Race.

The 2013 schedule looks pretty much like the 2012 schedule, with the exception of Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway and Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., swapping their fall dates. Actually, the swap returns each track to its regular dates prior to 2012, as the two tracks traded dates of their second races of the season to allow extra time for a repave at Kansas between that track’s two races this year.

Below, is the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule:
