With the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series taking a much needed break from the action this weekend, the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and Nationwide Series take to the 1.5 tri-oval speedway of Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois for some great racing and excitement. Last year in the Nationwide Series, Trevor Bayne came back from his six week illness induced layoff but it was Justin Allgaier who won over Carl Edwards as both drivers ran out of fuel at the end. Will this year’s race end in an exciting finish? There are only two Sprint Cup drivers taking time away from their vacation to race at Chicagoland this weekend; Sam Hornish, Jr has been driving the No. 22 for the suspended A.J. Allmendinger will continue to drive the No. 12 for Penske Racing and Kyle Busch will strap in for his own team, Kyle Busch Motorsports, and give his big brother Kurt a much needed rest behind the wheel.
