These Chicago streets have never been raced before by professional stock car drivers. NASCAR has provided a sneak peek at what the drivers will see when they compete on the streets of the Windy City in July.
NASCAR will have its first-ever weekend along the streets of Chicago on July 1 and July 2, 2023. They just dropped a video this week showing what the street course will look like.

These stock cars will pick up a ton of speed along this straightaway.
