Sprint Cup Series Qualifying To Take Place Friday, Sept. 16


Joliet, Ill. – August 31, 2016 – Chicagoland Speedway today announced that the Illinois Treasurer’s I-Cash program will return as the sponsor for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series pole qualifying on Friday, Sept. 16. I-Cash Pole Qualifying features a series of three knockout rounds of qualifying with Sprint Cup drivers battling to start on the front row in the first race for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.

Four days of racing action at Chicagoland Speedway will start on Thursday, Sept. 15 with I-Cash Pole Qualifying taking place on Friday followed by the American Ethanol e15 225 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series under the lights.

In Illinois, the state treasurer is the custodian of unclaimed property, such as life insurance benefits, old bank accounts and unused rebate cards.

The Treasurer's Office is currently safeguarding 2.5 billion dollars of unclaimed money, 28 million shares of stock, and the contents of thousands of safe deposit boxes. Frerichs' office never charges money to search the database or return unclaimed property.

"We are excited to join race fans again this year at the Chicagoland Speedway Sprint Cup qualifying event," said Illinois Treasurer Michael Frerichs. "We hope to give race fans even more reason to celebrate. It just takes two minutes to visit our website at to discover if you have property to claim. The average claim is $2,900."

“The I-Cash program provides a tremendous service to the residents of Illinois,” said Scott Paddock, President of Chicagoland Speedway. “We’re looking forward to once again giving the Illinois Treasurer’s I-Cash program the platform it deserves this September with a thrilling round of qualifying.”

It's easy, free and confidential for Illinois residents to discover if they have assets waiting for them:

  2. Identify your properties and provide your contact information online.
  3. Within minutes, I-Cash will email you a claim form to sign and mail along with proof of ownership to claim your assets.
