Chicagoland Speedway is a 1.5 mile oval that opened in 2001 and has hosted several NASCAR, Indy Racing, and many other events in its relatively young history.
There is no formal tour of the track available, but most racing events offer a pit pass, which will allow you close access to the teams before the race. The track also has been known to host events over the years that allow you to drive modified NASCAR and open wheel cars on the track at speeds of 150 mph+
Like almost all US and Canadian Stadiums, you will need to enter through a metal detector before entering the stadium. Be sure to give yourself extra time and don't bring any weapons or devices that could be seen as a weapon inside. Pat down searches may be required.
A soft-sided cooler no larger than 6"x6"x 12" and a soft-sided bag no larger than 18"x18"x4" may be brought into the track. All bags are subject to search.
Note: Bag and security policy listed above are for typical sporting events. Special events, concerts, and other situations may result in variation to the policy. Please check event website for any changes or variation.
See the Rail to Race program under the "Rail" section.
METRA and Amtrak partner with the track for a Rail to Race service. Take the train from Union Station in downtown Chicago (METRA) or St Louis (Amtrak). Advanced reservations required, which can be purchased through the track website on the specific race's page.
