ST. LOUIS– NASCAR is coming to St. Louis in 2022. The announcement is underway right now at Ballpark Village.

NASCAR officials awarded the World Wide Technology Raceway (WWTR) a date on the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series Schedule.

The race does not have a title yet but it will take place on Sunday, June 5, 2022.

Officials say landing a NASCAR Cup Series at WWTR heightens St. Louis’ as a motorsports destination.

 It is the only one in the U.S. to now host the premier series for each of the three preeminent racing organizations: NASCAR, INDYCAR, and NHRA.
