Event times for 2014 Nationwide Series schedule
The Nationwide Series season will open at Daytona International Speedway on ESPN

For the third consecutive season, the NASCAR Nationwide Series schedule will consist of 33 races on intermediate venues, road courses, superspeedways and short tracks, and all will air on the ESPN family of networks. All races are broadcast by either Motor Racing Network, Performance Racing Network or Indianapolis Motor Speedway Radio Network, and also air on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio channel 90.

Three road course races will again be showcased, including Road America (June 21, 2:45 p.m. ET, ABC ), Watkins Glen International (Aug. 9, 2:15 p.m. ET, ESPN) and Mid-Ohio (Aug. 16, 2:45 p.m. ET, ESPN), which is located less than 60 miles from Nationwide Insurance’s Columbus, Ohio headquarters.

Changes to the schedule include three date shifts from the 2013 edition: Darlington Raceway will hold its race a month earlier (April 11, 8 p.m. ET, ESPN2), while the first Iowa Speedway event is now slated for May 18 at 2 p.m. ET on ESPN (it had previously been held in June). Texas Motor Speedway’s date moved one week earlier in the calendar to April 4 at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2; the Texas and Darlington date changes coincide with the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule. Chicagoland Speedway’s standalone event will return to a night race (July 19, 8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2) for the first time since hometown driver Justin Allgaier won there in 2011.

Daytona International Speedway hosts the season opener on Feb. 22 at 1:15 p.m. ET on ESPN while the series finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway is set for Nov. 15 at 4:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
