Are you ready to ROCK? If so then head to Chicago for some racing and music. Both NASCAR and the ARCA Racing Series have invaded Chicago and the Chicagoland Speedway for a dual race weekend. The rocking part is that the weekend includes concerts by a couple of old school names in the rock world.
Collective Soul and Switchfoot are kicking things of for the race weekend as co-headliners for a weekend opening concert at the speedway which is actually located in Joliet just outside of Chicago.
Even if you're not a big fan of either band don't worry about missing out on the action as the track has also packed the race weekend with all kinds of fan events. In addition they have improved access to the garage area for the weekend for fans to take advantage of massive autograph sessions.
Racing for the weekend includes Saturday's Ansell ActivArmr 150 by the ARCA Racing Series. That race will be followed by the NASCAR Nationwide Series running of the EnjoyIllinois.com 300 race.
