There have been 15 Nationwide races held at Chicagoland, including one event per season from 2001-10 and then two each year since then.

Richard Childress has the most car owner wins in Nationwide races at Chicagoland with four, followed by Joe Gibbs with three.
No driver has won a Nationwide race from the pole position at Chicagoland. The furthest back a driver has started and won an event in the series there is 34th, accomplished by Justin Labonte, who is the son of two-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Terry Labonte.

Two drivers on the entry list for this race made their Nationwide debuts one year ago at Chicagoland: Alex Bowman and Juan Carlos Blum.
Brian Scott scored his maiden pole in the series at Chicagoland on Sept. 17, 2011.

The next race is the Sept. 21 Kentucky 300 at Kentucky Speedway. Austin Dillon won last year's event there.
