First-Time Events For Two NASCAR Series

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — It is the rare race weekend where the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series will each be racing at a venue for the first time. Though this will be the inaugural NASCAR Cup Series event this weekend, World Wide Technology Raceway has hosted 15 NASCAR Xfinity Series races from 1997-2010 and 21 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races from 1998-2010 and 2014-2021. Twenty-four drivers entered in this weekend’s NASCAR Cup Series race have experience in either the NASCAR Xfinity Series or NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at World Wide Technology Raceway. There have been 97 NASCAR national series races in the state of Illinois among five different tracks. NASCAR first visited Portland International Raceway with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 1999 and 2000. It was a NASCAR Cup Series race, and the event was won by Herb Thomas driving a Chrysler for car owner Carl Kiekhaefer.
