The new dirt-track race at Bristol Motor Speedway will feature two 75-lap stages before a 100-lap final stage, NASCAR announced Monday.

The circuit released the stage lengths for almost all of the schedule, leaving off only the May 23 event at Circuit of the Americas and the June 13 non-points All-Star Race at Texas Motor Speedway.

The Bristol dirt-track race is scheduled for March 28.

The Daytona 500 (Feb. 14) will maintain its sequence of two 65-lap stages followed by a 70-lap finale.

The Coca-Cola 600, May 30 at Charlotte Motorspeedway, is sticking with four stages, each 100 laps.

The season-ending event at Phoenix Raceway (Nov. 7) is also unchanged at a 75-lap stage, a 110-lap stage and then a 122-lap stage.

After the Busch Clash opens the NASCAR Cup Series season on Feb. 9 at Daytona, the Bluegreen Vacations Duel, a pair of 150-mile races on Feb. 11, will set the stage for the circuit's biggest event three days later.
