NASCAR”s Weekend Race Wreaking Havoc On Chicago Commuters

The long-awaited NASCAR Chicago Street Race is here and it’s already causing a major headache for Chicagoans.  As of last night all north and southbound lanes of Michigan Avenue are shut down between Jackson Drive and Balbo Drive among other major closures.  The detours are forcing drivers to reroute around Grant Park and beyond.  The race runs tomorrow and Sunday.
