Overlooked by 75,000 seats, the 1.5-mile long, asphalt track is a tri-oval featuring a 2,400-foot front stretch with banking of 11 degrees, a 5-degree backstretch measuring 1,700 feet, and corners with banking of 18 degrees. Chicagoland Speedway hosts a number of NASCAR events and, for the first ten years of its existence, was also home to IndyCar Series and Indy Lights racing. It has the distinction of being the setting for the closest finish in IndyCar history.
