KANSAS CITY, Kan. — The Kansas Speedway announced Tuesday it will host two ARCA Menards Series events in 2021.

The first event will take place on Saturday, May 1 and either Saturday, Oct. 23 or Sunday, Oct. 24.

The October race will be the championship event, which was claimed by Munford, Alabama native Bret Holmes this year.
