NASCAR has released its 2021 schedule for the Camping World Truck Series, the organization's only series to feature modified pickup trucks.

The schedule, which was released on Thursday, lists 22 races from February until November next year.

“The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series provides some of the most intense and entertaining competition in all of racing,” said Ben Kennedy, NASCAR vice president of racing development. “The 2021 iteration of the schedule will build upon that intensity through a wide variety of long-tenured race tracks and new venues like Knoxville Raceway. The variety of disciplines will increase the demand for drivers and culminate with a truly battle-tested champion at Phoenix.”

The schedule shows that the trucks will race in Las Vegas on two separate occasions.

On March 5, they will race in the Strat 200 -- a 134-lap, 200-mile long race that's been held annually under multiple names since 1996, with the exception of the year 2000. They will head to Las Vegas once again on September 24, for the World of Westgate 200 playoff race. This newer race has been held at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway since 2018.

Broadcast times and networks for all three national series will be announced at a later date.
