Chicagoland Speedway Announces 2005 Season Schedule
(Joliet, Ill. -- September 10, 2004) Chicagoland Speedway officially announced the 2005 season schedule that will feature the return of NASCAR weekend in July and the Indy Racing League® and ARCA RE/MAX Series weekend in September. Chicagoland Speedway also announced there will not be an increase in Track Pack ticket prices for the 2005 season.
Chicagoland Speedway's 2005 season will open with the 300-mile NASCAR Busch Series race on Saturday, July 9 and the 400-mile NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series race on Sunday, July 10. The 2005 season will conclude with the 100-mile IRL® Menards Infiniti Pro Series^Ù race and 200-mile ARCA RE/MAX Series race on Saturday, September 10 and the Delphi Indy 300 (IRL® IndyCar® Series) on Sunday, September 11.
"We are excited to once again welcome back NASCAR, IRL and ARCA to Chicagoland Speedway," said Matthew Alexander, vice president and general manager of Chicagoland Speedway. "It is always our goal to give our Track Pack holders the most valuable motorsports and entertainment ticket in town and we will continue to look at ways to maximize our guests' experience."
Alexander urges race fans to act now so they don't miss the 2005 racing action. "The world-class racing we have brought to the Chicago market has created a tremendous amount of excitement and an ever expanding fan base. Chicagoland Speedway and our Track Pack have quickly become one of the hottest sports or entertainment tickets in the third largest market in the country. Because of the outstanding racing, our beautiful facility and the entertainment value we offer in our Track Pack, we have sold out our grandstands each year since our 2001 inaugural season. We encourage our 2004 Track Pack fans to purchase quickly for the best seats available and so they are not caught looking for tickets that are not available next summer. If you did not have Track Packs for the 2004 season, we suggest you call and place your name on the 2005 Track Pack waiting list to beat the general public on-sale date."
2004 Track Pack holders will have the first option to purchase 2005 Track Packs, as well as add seats. Once 2004 Track Pack holders have been accommodated, those on the 2005 wait list will be given the opportunity to purchase a 2005 Track Pack. For a $25 deposit, which will be used towards the purchase of 2005 Track Pack, race fans can be placed on the current wait list. Wait list fans will be accommodated before Track Packs go on sale to the general public on Monday, February 21, 2005.
