NASCAR has announced its musical lineup for Chicago Road Race WeekendJuly 1-2, calling it a “two-day racing and music festival like you’ve never seen before.”

The Black Crowes and The Chainsmokers will play the warm-up date on July 1, with concerts concluding the NASCAR Xfinity Series race around Grant Park (The Xfinity Series is NASCAR’s second tier circuit).

On July 2, Charley Crockett and Miranda Lambert will take the stage before the start of the first race of the Cup Series.

Tickets for general admission go on sale February 2.


The Street Race, which will start and finish in front of Buckingham Fountain, will take riders past some of the city’s most iconic lakefront landmarks. Announced in July 2022the race met with mixed reactions.

City officials touted the revenue-generation potential as opponents, including Friends of the Parks, filed complaints against closing Grant Park to the public during the summer peak season.

The park district sold NASCAR the permit for $500,000, plus fees on concessions, merchandise and ticket sales.

Here’s a look at the layout of the course.
