With both racing leagues enjoying immense popularity right now it’s inevitable that Indy car odds events would overlap tracks with stock car racing. This is especially so when it comes to Indy car odds events near major metropolitan areas and the Chicagoland Speedway plays host to two NASCAR Sprint Cup events as well as the Indy car odds season finale Peak Antifreeze Indy 300.
This track often gets a bad rap as being little more than one of the many cookie cutter tracks across middle-America that’s used as host for both stock car racing and Indy car odds events. But despite its lack of uniqueness, there are few complaints from Indy car betting odds fans as this track has continued to host one exiting Indy car odds event after another. It doesn’t hurt either that the Chicagoland Speedway also hosts the final race of the Indy car betting odds season and more than once it’s gone down to the wire and we’ve seen some crazy Indy car odds finishes here in the past.
The 300 mile race consists of 200 laps of all out Indy car odds action and wide-open racing competition. The tri-oval is one of the fastest tracks to host an Indy car betting odds event and the race goes by so quickly that at times, it can seem the Indy car odds event is over even before it began.
This year the former IRL drivers will have a huge advantage over the former CART drivers, just as they have all season at Indy car odds events hosted at oval tracks. CART used to hold Indy car odds events here but discontinued after the 2002 season. IRL on the other has held Indy odds event since 2001.
Last year Dario Franchitti wrapped up his IRL Indy car odds driving championship with a win here. He’s since gone onto a disappointing career in NASCAR and the field looks wide open. Dan Weldon won in 2006 and seems to have a familiarity for the Indy car odds track having won here twice. Sam Hornish Jr., an accomplished oval racer in his own right has also faired well here in the past and has a good shot at claiming the Indy car odds title here.
