    Yep, and I figured if anyone got it it would be you for the reason given.

    I watch SLM races there as much as possible, 62 miles from home.

    Does anyone want to make this a semi-formal off-season game? We do something similar on my ski forums in the off-season. Post a picture of a track, people guess, and whoever gets it right gets to post the next picture. That way we're not posting and guessing 7 pictures at once...

    I knew nothing of Chicago Motor Speedway. Very interesting.



    I also learned Sepang and Shanghai have ridiculously close features minus the giant super-chinese arch. ****** Hermann Tilke.

    It was a pretty cool track, way better than what we have now in Chicagoland Speedway. I was there in August of 99 for the inaugural Target Indy Grand Prix. Went back for the 00 and 01 editions where also in 01 I saw a 16 year old Kyle Busch race in the Trucks race there and I was blown away because we are the same age, I couldn’t imagine someone the same age as me racing professionally already. By 02 CART and NASCAR pulled their races and put them at the spanking new Chicagoland Speedway. The speedway soon died after. It wasn’t actually in Chicago limits, it was in a suburb called Cicero where I currently work today. In fact I drive by the old speedway almost everyday which has been torn down in favor of a Walmart and Wirtz Beverage (they own the Chicago Blackhawks), on Friday’s I actually service the Wirtz facility and drive in the same exact way as I used to for the old speedway, a bit of a time warp.

    What's the backstory with why they built 2 tracks in Chicago in very quick succession? It just seems so odd to build this and then build Chicagoland.

    I was too young to understand why it failed, I remember my father saying it was tough to do business with the town (which is very true) and Joliet gave NASCAR/ISC a sweet heart deal to move their Truck race. Here’s some links I found to better explain. It’s a shame...such a cool track it was like if Dover and New Hampshire had a baby, Chicago Motor Speedway was the kid. I remember my dad and I trying to figure how Cup cars would do there...CART put on a good show there.

    Long time lurker, first time poster. Since nobody was getting the second one, it’s Brands Hatch.

    I’ve driven Brands Hatch so much on Gran Turismo I know it like the back of my hand.

    I always wondered what happened to that place. Wasn't that also the location for that awful Sly Stalone racing movie?
