Future Of Joliet Track To Be Revealed

CHICAGO -- Raceway Associates, organizers of Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Ill., will make an announcement Monday, May 8, regarding its 2001 schedule, new name for the track and corporate ticket program.

The Navy Pier Grand Ballroom, in downtown Chicago, will be the site of the announcement. Speculation is that officials from the NASCAR Winston Cup Series and Indy Racing Northern Light Series will add the Joliet track to their schedules.
