The 2015 NASCAR race schedule was released Tuesday and New Hampshire Motor Speedway will celebrate its 25th anniversary by once again hosting two Sprint Cup Series weekends.

The dates of some of the New Hampshire races will be slightly altered, according to NHMS.com.

The Camping World RV Sales 301 will be held July 19, while the Sylvania 300 will retain its traditional spot as the second race of the Challenger Round in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship on Sept. 27.

The Nationwide Series (July 18) and Camping World Truck Series (Sept. 26) will again be on the Saturday docket as part of the two NASCAR weekends.

“We are certainly focused on our upcoming (Sept. 20-21) NASCAR weekend, but we are absolutely thrilled to celebrate our silver anniversary by once again hosting two NASCAR weekends in 2015,” said Jerry Gappens, executive vice president and general manager of the speedway in a press release on NHMS.com.

Gappens also said that he will be in discussions with both NASCAR and American-Canadian Tour officials about including their regional touring series (which includes the Whelen Modified Tour, K&N Pro Series East and the ACT Invitational races) as part of next year’s events.
