FORT WORTH, Texas – Mark Faber is channeling his inner Dallas Cowboys history in a bid to “de-couch” the fan base at Texas Motor Speedway.

It’s a complicated to-do list for Faber, TMS’ third chief executive, at a critical juncture in the history of “The Great American Speedway.” TMS will operate during its 27th season in 2023 with only one NASCAR Cup Series weekend for the first time since 2004. 

Marcus G. Smith, president and CEO of parent company Speedway Motorsports, announced Sept. 8 that NASCAR’s All-Star Race was being moved from TMS to historic North Wilkesboro (N.C.) Speedway in May 2023. That ended the specialty event’s two-year run in the competitive Dallas-Fort Worth sports market amid tepid fan response.

As unveiled on Sept. 14, TMS will play host to a single NASCAR Cup and Xfinity series Playoff weekend on Sept. 23-24, 2023. The major event schedule will open with a combined NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and NTT IndyCar Series weekend April 1-2. That April 2 race date will be the first in a new “multi-year partnership” with sanctioning body INDYCAR.
