CHICAGO (July 7, 2024) – Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race from the streets of Chicago was filled with drama – primarily from heavy rains which again plagued the afternoon – and ultimately forced the race to be shortened to 58 laps. Joey Hand led RFK with a career-best P4 finish in the #Stage60 Ford after winning stage two, while Brad Keselowski finished 18th and Chris Buescher 20th in the second-ever trip to the streets of Chicago.

Due to lingering rains and multiple delays, NASCAR was ultimately forced to shorten the race. It was determined that the white flag would fly at 8:20 p.m. CT, and that determination came to fruition as the field crossed lap 56 at 8:20 p.m. CT.

6 Recap
Keselowski posted one of his career-best qualifying efforts on a road course on Saturday, advancing to the final round in the Elk Grove Village No. 6. He ultimately qualified 10th after a mishap on his final run in the final round, still marking his best qualifying effort of the season on a road course.

Due to repairs needed from the qualifying incident, Keselowski started the race from near the rear of the field. He worked his way to 24th by the end of stage one, just prior to the first of multiple waves of rain that impacted the track surface.

Following his lone pit stop (of the day) at lap 21, Keselowski started stage two in 25th, before the first of two red flags was displayed a handful of laps later. The No. 6 team kept him on track through the end of stage two, earning a P3 finish as daylight dwindled.

He fired back off third at lap 47, and was third again on the race’s final restart at lap 52. He fell to fifth in the final two laps, but was later pushed into the tire barrier on the last lap to ultimately finish 18th.
