NASCAR released its schedule for the 2012 season Wednesday, and it looks a lot like this year's.
No races have been added or deleted and no changes have been made to the Chase for the Championship venues.
As it has since 2002, the season begins and ends in Florida, although the Daytona 500 gets a new race weekend for the first time in more than four decades.
The Daytona 500 has been run on the Presidents Day weekend for 40 years. However, the 54th annual running will be pushed back to Feb. 26, the latest it has run since 1967.

Another schedule shuffle involved Kentucky Speedway.
The track's second-ever Sprint Cup race will take place a week earlier than this year's inaugural Quaker State 400, landing on June 30, 2012.
Just as this year's race, next year's is scheduled for a Saturday night. The race time has not been announced. The event will be televised live on TNT.
NASCAR will release the 2012 schedules for its Nationwide Series and Camping World Truck Series at a later date.
