NASCAR triumphs and defeats at the Chicago Street Race

NASCAR triumphs and defeats at the Chicago Street Race. The Chicago Street Race proved to be a challenging event for NASCAR drivers, as they encountered both triumphs and obstacles.

WINNERS

Justin Marks, the owner of Trackhouse Racing, saw his team win last weekend at Nashville Superspeedway, not far from where he resides, and then again on Sunday on the streets of Chicago for Project 91. Marks has dominated a NASCAR street race for years, and his team wins the first-ever Cup street race with Shane van Gisbergen.

Justin Haley’s second-place finish marked his first top-five finish since the Charlotte Roval race last autumn. It was not a terrible ending to a weekend that began with him leaving his luggage behind.

Ty Gibbs — The rookie’s ninth-place finish moved him to 16th in points with eight races remaining in the regular season, the final transfer position for the playoffs.

NASCAR — The rain was a nuisance, and some questioned the officials’ decision to halt the Xfinity race before it reached the halfway point, but the inaugural Chicago Street Race was not as disastrous as feared. NASCAR demonstrated its ability to race on city streets, which should lead to more opportunities in the future.

LOSERS

Christopher Bell — He won both stages, but his race was altered by NASCAR’s decision to abbreviate the event due to impending darkness. Some drivers had pitted more recently than Bell, allowing them to finish the race. After the pit stop, Bell dropped from first to outside the top ten. Later, he was involved in a multi-car collision that momentarily blocked the track, and then he was involved in a second incident. He placed 18th.

Alex Bowman entered the competition possessing the final transfer spot, but lost it by finishing last. He dropped from sixteenth to twentieth in points.

Austin Dillon was in contention for the lead until he was no longer. In Turn 12, while running second, Dillon crashed into the wall, terminating his race. He placed 37th.

Noah Gragson — He collided with the tire barriers at Turn 6 four times. It was not his day, as he placed 25th.
