World Wide Technology Raceway (WWTR) has solidified its standing as a premier motorsports venue as NASCAR officials today awarded the 1.25-mile oval in metropolitan St. Louis a highly coveted date on the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series schedule.

Owner Curtis Francois stated the following:

“We’re looking at it as a great opportunity for our community, to strengthen the metro-east area here, to open the possibility for jobs and commerce, and to make a difference in our community,”

“We are going to be hiring, expanding and building. There are all types of exciting projects on tap for the next eight to nine months.

When St. Louis as added to the 2022 schedule. Pocono Raceway was only given one NASCAR date instead of the usual two races. There is no guarantee a race will come back to St. Louis as it will depend on how the city and surrounding area responds to this race with attendance and how the WWTR organization handles all of the pre-race duties.
