Camping World 300 (Chicagoland)

  (Redirected from Tropicana Twister 300)

The Camping World 300 is a NASCAR Xfinity Series stock car race held annually at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois. In 2008 the race has been held at night under Chicagoland Speedway's new lighting system, after being held as a day race for the previous 7 years. However, in 2011, the race returned to daytime. From 2016–2017, it served as the final race of NASCAR's "regular season" for the Xfinity Series, Following the race, the top 12 drivers in points standings advance to the seven-race NASCAR Xfinity Series playoffs. Starting in 2018, the race moved to June, the weekend before 4th of July. The new race that Las Vegas Motor Speedway acquired from Kentucky Speedway took Chicagoland's former spot.
