Dale Earnhardt Jr. Reacts to NASCAR’s Street Race Announcement

NASCAR announced on Tuesday that it is adding a race in a “major metropolitan market”—downtown Chicago.

The Cup Series’ first-ever street race will take place in July next season. Ben Kennedy, NASCAR senior vice president of racing development and strategy, said in the press release, “Like the Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum, we seized an incredible opportunity to add an unprecedented element to our schedule and take center stage in the heart of another major metropolitan market.

“This is the ideal setting for the first-ever NASCAR Cup Series street race. The NASCAR Cup Series Next Gen cars and the IMSA machines will race along the shores of Lake Michigan in downtown Chicago, marking a truly historic moment for our sport.”
