The Owens Corning AttiCat 300 race is being held at the Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, IL this Saturday, June 20th. Defending race winner Chase Elliot will battle it out with Chris Buescher, Ty Dillon, Regan Smith, Darrell Wallace Jr., and all of the stars of the NASCAR XFINITY Series, for the checkered flag. As part of the opening ceremony, Team Fastrax™ will be performing their famous pyrotechnic skydive and will also be jumping with one of their 2,000 sq. ft. American Flags.
