(Joliet, Ill. - August 19, 2008) Chicagoland Speedway announced today that its 2009 season Track Packs will include an inaugural NASCAR Truck Series night race scheduled for Friday evening, August 28. This weekend will also feature the facility's first-ever IndyCar Series night race on Saturday evening, August 29.

"We're very thrilled about the NASCAR Truck Series coming to Chicagoland Speedway," said Matthew Alexander, president of Chicagoland Speedway. "This latest addition to our schedule is a great compliment to an already action-packed race weekend in August and reinforces the fact that there is a very strong motorsports fan base here in the Midwest. This is another exciting step for the growth of racing in the Chicago market."

Along with the NASCAR Truck Series race in August, the 1.5-mile D-shaped tri-oval will once again host two night races during its 2009 NASCAR race weekend. The Dollar General 300 powered by Coca-Cola NASCAR Nationwide Series race is scheduled to take place on Friday evening, July 10, followed by the 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Saturday evening, July 11.

"Having the opportunity to showcase NASCAR?s top-three national series throughout the year not only increases the buzz and excitement surrounding both of our race weekends, but also enhances the value of our season Track Packs," continued Alexander. "This is just another way we strive to ensure we provide our fans and guests with the best possible experience at our facility every year."
