Camping World 400 - NASCAR Cup Series Tickets
Overton's 400 Tickets
Every year, NASCAR racing comes to the Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois, for the Overton's 400. The race is part of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, which pits the top stock car racers against each other.
More about the Overton's 400
The NASCAR circuit track Chicagoland Raceway, which opened in 2000, is a mile-and-a-half tri-oval track. Cars can build up a head of steam on the straightaways and maintain some of that speed going into the turns. The turns are banked at 18 degrees, which means that cars do not have to slow down on the turns. Cars can turn in laps that average 185 miles per hour during a race. The new NASCAR package has helped make racing at Chicagoland more exciting as drivers are now able to do more side-by-side racing. Previous versions of the race have been relatively incident-free with fewer wrecks than at some other tracks.
The Overton's 400 experience
Chicagoland Raceway is located approximately 25 miles south of Chicago in the city of Joliet. This area is easily reachable from most parts of the Chicagoland area. The venue has a capacity of 55,000, and the race usually draws a good-sized crowd to the track. The track has made continuous improvements such as adding amenities and concessions and also offering free parking in order to enhance the fan experience. Race fans can purchase pit passes that give them up-close access to the drivers and cars the day of the race. The track features numerous unique entertainment options for fans who attend race weekend, including concerts and military ceremonies.
The history of Overton's 400
The first edition of this race was held in 2001. Kevin Harvick won the first two Cup Series races held at Chicagoland. Other two-time winners of this race have been Brad Keselowski, Tony Stewart and Martin Truex Jr. The race had traditionally been held in mid-July, but in 2011, NASCAR moved the race to September in order to be a part of the Chase playoffs. In 2018, NASCAR moved the race back to July. The 2018 race was one of the most exciting races in the history of Chicagoland. Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson had a memorable duel in the final laps with the two drivers trading paint before Busch prevailed. The number of lead changes in the race is a signal of exciting racing to come at Chicagoland Speedway with the new package.
