Shuttles will help with the crowds coming in for Enjoy Illinois 300

Local transit systems are in line to help move the masses expected in town for the upcoming Enjoy Illinois NASCAR race at World Wide Technology Raceway in Madison.

The inaugural NASCAR Cup Series Weekend will take place on June 3-5. Madison County Transit and the St. Clair County Transit District will offer four free shuttle bus lines to and from the speedway. The  shuttles will operate for more than 11 hours each day on Saturday, June 4, and Sunday, June 5.

“One of the reasons NASCAR chose World Wide Technology Raceway to host the Enjoy Illinois 300 was because of the tremendous community support of local, county and state governments with our venue.  Having two first-class transportation districts working together to accommodate race fans with free service to the event illustrates our region welcomes the opportunity to host great events,” said WWTR Executive Vice President and General Manager Chris Blair  “When race fans come to our track for these magical days in June, they will be treated to a level of hospitality like no other in racing and this is another perfect example of our community rallying together.”

“The Enjoy Illinois 300 NASCAR race is a win for Southwestern Illinois and our residents,” said Herb Simmons, Chair of the St. Clair County Transit District Board. “We look forward to showcasing the invaluable transit service St. Clair County Transit District provides as an option for residents and visitors alike to access the event.”

“On behalf of the Madison County Transit Board of Trustees, and our hard-working staff, we’re proud to provide Madison County residents and visitors a fast and convenient way to access the Enjoy Illinois 300,” said MCT Managing Director SJ Morrison. “This event will have a significant financial impact on the communities in Madison County and MCT is pleased to be part of its success.”
