Brickyard 400 to be held final weekend of July

Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — Next year's Brickyard 400 will be run July 27.

There were no surprises Tuesday when NASCAR revealed the 2014 Sprint Cup Series schedule. The Brickyard is one of NASCAR's biggest races each year. It has been held in late July since moving from its early August calendar slot in 2007.

The last two years, Sunday's NASCAR race has been preceded by sports car races and a Nationwide Series race, which is billed as the Super Weekend. Race organizers have not yet said when the Nationwide race will be held. It has traditionally been run on Saturday of race weekend.

The sports car races will be held July 25 on the speedway's 14-turn, 2.434-mile road course, which is being reconfigured during the offseason.
