The votes are in, and Chicagoland Speedway has been named "Track of the Year" by viewers of the popular Chicago Motorsports TV show, ?Victory Lane? on CLTV News. The announcement came Tuesday, November 27 during their final show of 2001. Beginning November 6, for three weeks, viewers took part in the show?s first annual ?Viewer?s Choice Awards? by voting through e-mail or by post card. Chicagoland Speedway received an overwhelming 73% of the vote en route to winning the award. ?We are extremely honored to receive this award and it means a lot to us because it comes from the race fans,? said Joie Chitwood, vice president and general manager of Chicagoland Speedway. ?Our inaugural season was a huge success because of the great motorsports fans in this area and we look forward to continually bringing major league auto racing to this area.? ?This award shows how much motorsports fans in Chicago appreciate having a major league facility in their own backyard,? said Pete Pistone, co-host of ?Victory Lane? on CLTV News. ?Fans in this area have been looking forward to major league auto racing like NASCAR and IRL to come here for a long time and Chicagoland Speedway made that come true.? CLTV News reaches approximately three million homes. Race fans can tune into ?Victory Lane? hosted by Pete Pistone and Rob Goldman beginning again February 19, 2002 each Tuesday at 9:00 pm CST.
