NASCAR at Chicago 2024: Start time TV streaming lineup for Grant Park 165

For the second consecutive season, NASCAR is set to take over the Windy City with a thrilling street race through downtown Chicago. The highly anticipated Grant Park 165 will see Cup Series drivers navigating iconic streets such as Michigan Avenue and Lake Shore Drive, passing famous landmarks like Buckingham Fountain. The race will start and finish in front of Grant Park, promising an exhilarating spectacle for motorsport fans.

The 2023 race faced challenges with torrential rain delaying the start by over 90 minutes and shortening the number of laps due to fading daylight. Despite these hurdles, the event delivered a unique and exciting finish. This year, the weather forecast looks promising with partly sunny skies and a high of 87 degrees, setting the stage for an even more thrilling race.

With only seven races remaining in the regular season, the Grant Park 165 presents a crucial opportunity for winless drivers who excel on road and street courses to secure a victory and a playoff berth. The question on everyone’s mind is: Who will capture the checkered flag in Chicago?

The Grant Park 165 is scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m. ET (3:30 p.m. local) on the streets of downtown Chicago. NBC will broadcast the race, with a pre-race show beginning at 4 p.m. ET (3 p.m. local). Fans can also live stream the event on Peacock, the NBCSports website, and the NBC Sports app. Additionally, the race will be available for streaming on Fubo.

The race will cover 75 laps around the 2.2-mile street course, totaling 165 miles. It will feature three segments: Stage 1 with 20 laps, Stage 2 with 25 laps, and Stage 3 with 30 laps.

In the most recent NASCAR Cup race at Chicago, Shane van Gisbergen made a stunning debut by chasing down Justin Haley and Chase Elliott to win. The New Zealand native and three-time Supercars champion led the final eight laps, pulling away from Haley by 1.259 seconds.
