The 2024 Chicago Street Course NASCAR Cup Series race will be 75 laps and 165 miles, while the Xfinity race will be 50 laps and 110 miles.

The information was provided in a Tweet by the NASCAR Chicago Street Race Weekend X (Twitter) account.

2023’s Cup race was 100 laps and 220 miles. The Xfinity race was scheduled for 55 laps and 121 miles.

NASCAR and the Chicago Park District, whose leaders are appointed by Johnson, could have terminated the agreement without a penalty before the end of December.  NASCAR can cancel the event by the end of March, but would have to pay the Chicago Park District a $250,000 termination fee, according to the agreement.

In 2024 NASCAR will pay the city a $550,000 permit fee, up from $500,000 this year, according to the contract. In addition, NASCAR will once again pay the Park District a $2 fee per admission ticket, and a 15% commission on food, beverage and merchandise sales at the event.
