CHICAGO — As Chicago prepares to welcome a pair of NASCAR races to the downtown area this summer, event organizers have announced the music lineup for the two-day event.
NASCAR announced plans last year for the racing series’ first-ever street race, which will take place in Chicago on July 1-2. NASCAR officials said that tickets will go on sale to the general public on Feb. 3 but said that the weekend that features two street races will also include two full-length concerts featuring the Chainsmokers and Miranda Lambert.
The NASCAR races will be run on an “unprecedented” 12-turn, 2.2-mile course that will showcase the Cup Series and NASCAR’s Xfinity Series through a series of downtown landmarks as part of celebrations that will take place over the July 4 weekend.
“The Chicago Street Race is truly a first-of-its-kind two-day sports and entertainment event in the 75-year history of NASCAR,” Chicago Street Race President Julie Giese said in a news release.
In addition to the full-length concerts, the weekend’s music lineup will feature The Black Crowes and Charley Crockett, organizers said.
Two-day general admission tickets starting at $269 will go on sale to the public at 10 am on Feb. 2. Fans can subscribe at NASCARChicago.com to receive exclusive Chicago Street Race emails and gain early access to purchase general admission tickets as part of an exclusive pre-sale on Jan 31 and Feb 1.
On sale now are two-day reserved tickets starting at $465 that offer an array of opportunities including reserved seating and a wide variety of premium experiences. One such experience is the President’s Paddock Club which is elevated above the tree line and situated above Pit Road, giving patrons a direct view into the pit boxes and a panoramic view of nearly the entire course, along with premium food and beverage, pre-race and driver introductions, and access to exclusive premium club spaces.
