2009 NASCAR Camping World East Series
The 2009 NASCAR Camping World East Series schedule was announced on December 24, 2008. The 23rd season for the series consists of an 11 race schedule at 10 tracks. The series lost three tracks from last year's schedule (Stafford Motor Speedway, Music City Motorplex and Mansfield Motorsports Park) but gains one new track for this season (Tri-County Motor Speedway).
The Tennessee State Fairgrounds was initially on the schedule but changes in management of the track at the venue (new management decided to eliminate NASCAR sanction) resulted in the loss of the event.
For the fourth year in a row, the regular season will start at Greenville-Pickens Speedway on April 11. The series will make its first appearance at Tri-County Motor Speedway two weeks later on April 25 before heading to Iowa for the series' third appearance at Iowa Speedway.
The Iowa race will be a combination East/West race where drivers from both series will compete against each other. Drivers are awarded points based on their finishing position against drivers in their series. (i.e. Highest finishing driver in the East gets first place points and the highest finishing driver in the West gets first place points).
Traditional stops at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Thompson International Speedway, Adirondack International Speedway, and Lime Rock Park fill up the bulk of the summer schedule before the regular season finale at Dover International Speedway on September 25.
The 2009 season Toyota All-Star Showdown takes place January 30, 2010, and will be televised live on Speed Channel.
