NASCAR at Chicago 2024: Start time, TV, streaming, lineup for Grant Park 165

For the second consecutive season, NASCAR takes over the Windy City for a street race through downtown Chicago on Sunday.

Cup Series drivers will cruise down iconic streets such as Michigan Avenue and Lake Shore Drive and past famous landmarks like Buckingham Fountain in a race that starts and finishes in front of Grant Park.

The 2023 race was marred by torrential rain, which delayed the start by more than 90 minutes and shortened the number of laps because of fading daylight, but it still produced a unique event and an exciting finish. This year’s conditions should be vastly improved, with a Sunday forecast of partly sunny skies and a high of 87 degrees.

With only seven races remaining in the regular season, Sunday presents a prime opportunity for a winless driver who excels on road and street courses to reach victory lane and snag a playoff berth.

Who will capture the checkered flag in Chicago? Here is all the information you need to get ready for Sunday’s Grant Park 165:
