About NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Geico 400 Joliet Tickets

 
The Geico 400 Joliet is held every year at the Chicagoland Speedway. The race track is the brainchild of Bill France Jr and Tony George. By the time 1996 rolled into town the look-out for a proper site had started in earnest in order to build a premiere racing circuit in Chicago. Joliet was then finalized as the prefect place for the speedway. After everything was put into place, the construction of the speedway started that ended in 1998. At the time of its completion the track was the most state-of- the-art anywhere in the country. The length of the track is one and a half mile which is tri-oval in design. The track has hardly undergone any major changes apart from the installation of lights in the year 2008.
 
Owing to the magnificent facilities and the excitement that it generates, the Geico 400 Joliet is now the first race of the Chase for the Championship, Sprint Cup Series. During the early days if its inception the race was named the Tropicana 400. It soon became one of the most watched and anticipated races of the year. The fact five different racers came out on top during the first half a dozen races made it all the more intriguing and that played a big part in improving its profile right from the word go. It was decided that starting 2008, the race will be conducted at night rather than the day to add another dimension to it. The race was staged in July every year but after ten years it was decided to move it to August, starting 2011 season. The rescheduling was done to make it the first race of the Chase for the Championship, Sprint Cup Series. The move to August also brought a change in the timing of the race as it was once again converted into a day race.
