DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – NASCAR announced today the 2013 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East schedule that features 15 points races at 13 different tracks across the eastern United States.

The 27th season of K&N Pro Series East competition will see NASCAR’s top developmental division visit 10 states highlighted by six national series companion events including a pair of first-time visits to Florida.

“The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East features the stars of tomorrow, a very diverse entry list, and some of the most compelling racing action in the sport,” said George Silbermann, NASCAR vice president, regional and touring series. “The 2013 calendar provides an excellent mixture of local short tracks, NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide companion events, speedways, and a new high-profile event on a renowned road course. These are all the right ingredients for another outstanding season of racing excitement in NASCAR’s stepping stone to the national series.”

The season will commence with the inaugural UNOH Battle at the Beach exhibition event on the .4-mile track at Daytona (Fla.) Int’l Speedway on Feb. 19 in which the K&N Pro Series East and K&N Pro Series West will compete in combination. The K&N Pro Series East will then return to The Sunshine State on April 13 for its first appearance at the half-mile Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola.

In another debut event, NASCAR returns to Road Atlanta, the 2.54-mile road course located in Braselton, Ga., on Oct. 18. The stock-car series will join the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón for the Petit Le Mans weekend.

Following Daytona, the 2013 regular season will begin at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway, on March 16 as part of the spring NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend.

Iowa Speedway again will welcome both the K&N Pro Series East and K&N Pro Series West for combination contests. This year the first date is set for June 7 while the return date is Aug. 2. Both events will be held in conjunction with the NASCAR Nationwide Series at the Newton, Iowa track.

In addition to Bristol and the two Iowa races, the K&N Pro Series East will have three more companion events in 2013 with NASCAR’s national series. The East will return to Richmond (Va.) Int’l Raceway on April 25, New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, N.H., on Sept. 21, and Dover (Del.) Int’l Speedway on Sept. 27.

Greenville (S.C.) Pickens Speedway will host the series with dates on March 23 and Sept. 2. Short tracks Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, N.C. on June 1, Langley Speedway in Hampton, Va. on June 22 are featured dates on the slate as are a July 13 date at Columbus (Ohio) Motor Speedway and a visit to CNB Bank Raceway Park in Clearfield, Pa. on July 20.
