MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR SEPTEMBER NASCAR RACE

Jun, 30, 2011  |  Today's News

The “Family Farmers” race car, piloted by NASCAR drive Kenny Wallace, will be featured next at Chicagoland Speedway on September 17th.

That weekend marks the beginning of what’s called “The Chase” in NASCAR circles. The Camping World Truck Series will run on Friday, September 16. Kenny Wallace and the Family Farmers car will run on Saturday in the Nationwide Series race. The Sprint Cup race is on Sunday, September 18.

Illinois Corn will again have a presence in the exhibitor’s area at the track. Over the course of the three day weekend, more than 100,000 people are expected to visit the track. At the exhibit, non-farmers will be able to view machinery, learn about ethanol, and ask questions of “real farmers.”

Keep an eye on your “corn scoops” for more information about this event as we draw nearer to the date.
