Chicago street course marks a monumental step for the future of NASCAR

On a warm and sunny Tuesday afternoon in downtown Chicago, the race cars of Bubba Wallace, Ross Chastain and Chase Briscoe sat idly next to a stage occupied by NASCAR and City of Chicago officials.

Then came a situation that literally brought the cars to life. After several weeks of rumors, NASCAR Senior Vice President Ben Kennedy formally announced that the NASCAR Cup Series will take to the streets of downtown Chicago next July for the first-ever event held on a street course in what will be the series’ 75th anniversary.
