Fan at the Track – Oak Street Beach & Chicagoland Speedway

Last week, on Thursday, June 21st, Chicagoland Speedway hosted a Beach Party at Oak Street Beach in Chicago to unveil, their new look and new food for this season’s race weekends at the track. Fans can learn more about by reading CLS Unveils New Look & Chicago-Favorite Foods for the Track

Although the weather produced summer showers at the beach, the excitement for the upcoming races at Chicagoland Speedway was in full force, with appearances from 2011 Nationwide champion, Ricky Stenhouse Jr and Illinois natives, Justin Allgaier – last year’s Nationwide winner – and Danica Patrick, now racing in the Nationwide series full-time. All three NASCAR stars were gracious and friendly with fans throughout the event and will be racing at Chicagoland Speedway in July and again in September

Photos shared here are mainly from Chicagoland Speedway’s facebook page, but also include a few photos from Chicagoland Fans4Racing members, Russell and Darcy, who were recently at the track for the Richard Petty Rookie Experience. Enjoy!
