The move by NASCAR will expand the track's spring weekend from a doubleheader into a tripleheader with all three national series.

The Jag Metals 350K will be held Friday, March 29; the My Bariatric Solutions 300 Xfinity Series race on March 30; and the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race on March 31.

"The JAG Metals 350 race was shifted to the spring to assist NASCAR on race scheduling in the early part of the season as well as help Fox Sports 1 with television programming," TMS president Eddie Gossage said.

The PPG 400K truck race traditionally paired with the DXC Technology 600K Verizon IndyCar Series event will remain in that summer slot and is scheduled for Friday, June 7.

TMS has hosted to a tripleheader weekend in the fall since earning a second Cup Series date in 2005.

The "Tony Stewart Presents the Vankor Texas Sprint Car Nationals" at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track will move from the spring to the fall to better accommodate the schedule.
