NASCAR is heading to Eldora.

The dirt track that Tony Stewart owns will play host to the Camping World Truck Series on Wednesday, July 24, the week before the Brickyard 400. It will be the first Camping World Truck Series race on dirt and the first time that NASCAR has raced on dirt since 1970.

In October, Stewart said that he would be "ecstatic" if the series visited his track. On Wednesday, Stewart said that he hadn't decided if he would be entering his track's inaugural NASCAR race.

The Truck Series will also be visiting Canadian Tire Motorsports Park for the first time on September 1. The series visited Atlanta on that weekend last year.

The schedule remains at 22 races, the same as 2012. It also doesn't feature a race in March. The first race of the season is February 22 at Daytona International Speedway and the second race is April 6 at Martinsville.
