NASCAR just announced that Miranda Lambert and The Chainsmokers will be headlining Street Race weekend, along with other performances by Charley Crockett and The Black Crowes.
The event will be the first-ever street race in the NASCAR Cup Series, officially dubbed the Chicago Street Race, and will be held on July 1st and 2nd.
Chicago Street Race President Julie Giese says they wanted to bring out some of the best artists in the business for the special occasion:
“The Chicago Street Race is truly a first-of-its-kind two-day sports and entertainment event in the 75-year history of NASCAR.
We are proud to welcome superstars The Chainsmokers, Miranda Lambert, The Black Crowes, and Charley Crockett as we reimagine the NASCAR experience in the heart of downtown Chicago over Fourth of July weekend.”
Charley will open for Miranda on Sunday ahead of the main event, and she will have a full-length concert to get everyone warmed up for the Cup Series street race.
It’s sure to be a helluva weekend, and public ticket on-sale will begin on February 2nd:
“A two-day racing and music festival like you’ve never seen before.
