Some highlights:

The Southern 500 returns to Labor Day Weekend. If the fans don't pack the place NASCAR will use it as an excuse to kill the track off.

Atlanta's date is pushed back to March 1st. Not sure of the wisdom of this move. Temps won't be all that great and weather will likely be a factor. Could this result in Atlanta being tossed by the wayside?

The spring Bristol date moves from mid-March to mid-April.

13 of NBC's 20 races will be on NBCSN. The list includes the Brickyard Snore-hundred, Bristol, and Talladega.
Half of the Chase races will also be on NBCSN.

NASCAR should really look at moving the finale to Vegas. The awards ceremony is there and it would give the crowning of the champ a lot more pop. Having the last race of the season at Homestead is like holding the Super Bowl at a high school football stadium. Very underwhelming.

If they continue raising prices you can count on a lot of the fans being disguised as empty seats.
It's on my calendar for next year so I hope that I am wrong.
