Situated just a stone's throw from the magnificent city of Chicago is Joliet's renowned Chicagoland Speedway — a Midwest hot spot for NASCAR and Indy racing fans alike.
As one of the most spectator-friendly sports venues in Illinois, the track is located on 930 acres of land, with another 500 acres available just for parking. So you want 30,000+ vehicles parked (for free!) on a race car driving day in Chicago? You got it! Public racing experience days allow for friends and family of racing experience participants to enjoy seating in reserved areas of the Speedway's stands, which reach up to 15 stories tall.
The Chicagoland Speedway's track itself boasts 1.5 miles of D-shaped, tri-oval asphalt. With a perfect blend of speed-hungry straightaways, plus heart-pounding curves with 18-degree banking, it undoubtedly hosts the best Chicago race car driving experiences around.
From spectators to racing pros, all skill levels are welcome on the track's turf to enjoy the full Indy and NASCAR racing atmosphere: checkered flags, burnin' rubber, hot wheels, revving engines, music, concessions, photo ops, and plenty more!
