The Margin: NASCAR closer to adding Chicago street race as it competes with Formula 1 for fans


Chicago, the nation’s third-largest city, has reportedly agreed to let NASCAR hold a race through its downtown streets, part of a three-year deal, a major sports news site says Thursday.

The addition of a street race in a large market would be an important move for NASCAR as it fights to grow fan interest against the increasingly popular Formula 1 FWONK and Penske Corp.-owned IndyCar auto-racing series. Both already have multiple street races on their schedules.
