Now more than a decade into its history, the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series heads into 2023 looking ahead to one of its most unique schedules yet. The 18-race campaign mixes stops at many of NASCAR’s most iconic venues with a handful of out-of-the-box selections that follow in the real-world sport’s footsteps of expanding its horizons with new tracks on the calendar.
“This year’s eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series should be one of the most exciting championships we’ve ever had,” said iRacing president Tony Gardner. “The 2023 schedule is a mix of the tracks that have provided us with the most exciting races in series history, including a return to Homestead for the finale, and some new venues that will throw even our most experienced drivers a curveball early in the season. We can’t wait to kick things off with the Clash later this month before drivers start the chase for the title once again in Daytona!”

As in years past, the season kicks off with the Clash exhibition race on January 31, returning to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum as it did last year, before the first points-paying round of the year heads to Daytona International Speedway on February 14. From there, a new twist is added to the schedule, with the historic Milwaukee Mile on the schedule two weeks later. Milwaukee joins the legendary Monza circuit in Italy as two non-NASCAR Cup Series circuits to be added to this year’s campaign, with the latter representing the first time eNCiS will leave the United States.
Mainstays of the calendar like Richmond, Talladega, and Charlotte return for 2023, as does the Darlington Raceway throwback event on May 16. Drivers will have 14 rounds, concluding with the August 1 regular season finale at Pocono Raceway, to punch their ticket into the 10-driver playoffs, with visits to Michigan, Dover, and Phoenix to wind down the summer before the championship wraps up on September 26 at Homestead-Miami Speedway—which will once again be featured in a live event at the NASCAR Hall of Fame at Charlotte.
