The Cup Series will not return to Road America next year, a NASCAR executive confirmed Tuesday.

The inaugural Chicago street course race will replace Road America on the Cup schedule next year. The Chicago event will be Sunday, July 2, 2023 on NBC. The 2.2-mile course will feature 12 turns, racing around Grant Park and along Lake Shore Drive.

“Unfortunately, it won‘t be back but I‘ve had a long-standing relationship with them,” said Ben Kennedy, NASCAR senior vice president of racing development and strategy. “Just because we‘re not going back in ‘23 doesn‘t mean that we‘re not going to be back there in the future.”
