NASCAR fans and drivers alike have a lot of uncertainty in regards to tomorrow's Chicago street race because they do not know what to expect from the race. Considering that this is the first time that the Cup Series and Xfinity series have this type of race, there is a great deal of anxiety.
Kyle Busch stressed at the press conference that he expects "survival" races. Despite the fact that much is expected from him, it is impossible to predict what will happen. “Survival. It’s going to be a survival race,”- Busch said.
Busch stressed that this type of race will be a great challenge for everyone. “It’s really rough. It’s bumpy. It’s slippery. There’s some corners that are very challenging”. This legendary NASCAR driver emphasized which part of the race will be the most challenging for everyone.
In the end, it is exactly such moments that might prove decisive. "When you’re going around the Bean on the left-hander, that’s really, really slippery and there’s a huge bump going through (turn) 9 before you get into 10,” said Busch.
“It’s going to be a tight street course. That’s what tight street courses are”.
Chase Eliott and his impressions
Chase Elliott also expects that the race will be tough and filled with challenges. Throughout the interview, Elliott stressed that the corners will be the most difficult part of the race for everyone.
In spite of this, many people have been preparing for a race like this for a long time, given that for most of them, this is a completely new experience. “From my understanding, the surface is pretty rough,”-Elliott said.
“A lot of 90-degree corners. I’m sure it’s going to be very hot”. Ideally, there will be as few 'ugly' moments as possible, and we will enjoy a completely different environment and race.
