  • NASCAR Chicago Street Race draws fans from all over the world. In less than 24 hours, history will be made in Chicago as NASCAR takes over some of the city's busiest streets. CBS 2's Noel Brennan is live in Grant Park with excited fans as they stopped by to pick up their tickets. Well Jim, the statistic that keeps jumping out at me is that more than 80% of these fans will be experiencing their very first NASCAR race this weekend. But of course there are also some very very big NASCAR fans out there. I met many of them today, some from right here in Chicago and one guy who lives on the other side of the world. How can you not love it? The sounds, the crowd, it's so energetic. This is NASCAR in Chicago. The heart of a fan beats for her sport. It's not just getting in a car and driving, like these people put their livelihoods into it. Julia Szostak just snagged tickets at Butler Field for this weekend's NASCAR Chicago Street Race. I personally love adrenaline and anything that's like fast and a little bit risky. A racetrack feels like home and a bit like work. I work at a racetrack, Autobahn down in Joliet. I'm a corner worker in Flagger. I watch cars and motorcycles race as my job, which is awesome. But this race through city streets will kick everything into high gear. Yeah, yeah, this is awesome to be here. Rene Richmond and his family may still be jet lagged. Yeah, we come from New Zealand, so that's a 16, 17 hour flight. But they'll be living in the moment all weekend long. Why miss it, you know? Yeah. They have tickets for the race and a clear favorite driver. When you bring a Kiwi like Shane Van Gisburg in here, it should be cool, yeah. NASCAR says it's sold tickets to people on four continents. Could I please do the mini NASCAR helmet? But anyone in Chicago can visit the free NASCAR Village Experience at Butler Field.
