Finding the fastest way to the track isn't always the easiest task, but fortunately for fans, Chicagoland Speedway has taken the guesswork out of the equation for fans with a commute. Chicagoland Speedway will once again offer fans who are attending the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400, the convenient and affordable Train-to-Track program for those who take either Metra or Amtrak trains.

For just $5 each way, fans can take a short shuttle ride from Joliet's train station

to Chicagoland Speedway. Recommended routes include the Metra Rock Island District service, which riders can catch from any of the 25 stops along the way and the Amtrak to Joliet with service from St. Louis through Southern Illinois.

Guests utilizing the Train-to-Track program will receive print-at-home tickets upon

purchase and must reserve a specific time of departure to and from the race track.

Upon arrival at the Joliet train station, a Chicagoland Speedway ambassador will

greet fans outside and direct fans to a shuttle transporting fans directly to the

track. The Chicagoland Speedway ambassador will be available to answer questions

throughout the short trip to the track.
