Things look very different around the entry points to the World Wide Technology Raceway complex in Madison. A ton of work has gone into addressing any potential traffic issues related to this upcoming weekend’s first-ever NASCAR Cup Series race at the track.

The Illinois Department of Transportation worked with track officials and Illinois State Police prior to the big event.

IDOT Operations Engineer Joe Monroe tells longtime Big Z-area racing fans that they can expect to encounter traffic and parking changes.

Monroe says public transportation is an option for spectators coming to see the Enjoy Illinois 300 and associated events. A free shuttle will be provided from the Emerson Park Metrolink station in East St. Louis. The nearby Gateway National Golf Course in Madison will serve as the starting and ending point for rideshare services over the weekend.

Instructions on the best route to approach the track for each car park are posted on and the information has been shared with several mapping apps to help guide drivers.

IDOT will post necessary traffic updates on its Twitter page: @IDOTDistrict8.
