NASCAR: Chicago ticket prices higher than normal

Last February, the NASCAR Busch Light Clash, a race with a 32-year history at the Daytona International Speedway, was moved to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum — where, NASCAR’s Street Course President Julie Giese said, a “staggering” 70% of attendees had never attended a NASCAR event.

“Chicago is the next step” of “introducing our sport to a whole new audience,” she said.

Giese expects 100,000 people to attend the July 1-2 event. It will be structured like a festival — fans will purchase a two-day pass to the area around the track, where there will be an “A-list” concert each night in Hutchinson Field. Food, vehicle displays and interactive games will be at Buckingham Fountain.

Ticket prices — $269 for general admission and $465-plus for reserved seating — are higher than typical races, she said.
