Chicagoland Speedway Information
Share this page with other race fans!
Chicagoland Speedway is in Joliet, Illinois, USA, southwest of Chicago. The speedway is actually located several miles south of Joliet proper, just off Illinois Route 53 between Joliet and Wilmington, Illinois.
It currently has a capacity of 75,000 people. Since its inaugural season in 2001, the Chicagoland Speedway has become an unexpected and significant draw for major NASCAR and IRL events, often selling out major races months in advance.
The speedway itself is known to be one of NASCAR's infamous "cookie cutter" speedways, because it resembles many other 1.5-mile (2.4 km) downforce racetracks that resemble a D-shape in the NASCAR racing series. Although it may have the stigma of being a "cookie cutter" D-shaped oval, Chicagoland is unique in that it is one continuous curve, as the backstretch has a noticeable bend to it.
Things kick off on Friday when Fuel takes to the Miller Lite Concert Stage and performs from 4 – 5 p.m., prior to the Dollar General 300 Powered by Coca-Cola. On Saturday evening, country music star, Pat Green, is scheduled to perform from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. before the green flag drops for the LifeLock.com 400.
Fans will need to show proof of admission for the weekend (grandstand ticket, Infield ticket, RV campground ticket, etc.) in order to enter Champions Park.
