NASCAR is embarking on a bold, new venture and they’ve hired the perfect leader to take the reins.

The Arizona Republic has learned NASCAR will announce on Thursday that Julie Giese is returning to her midwestern roots and being named track president of the sport’s first street course in downtown Chicago.

“It’s a tremendous honor for me,” Giese told the Republic. “It’s exciting to get back to an area that I know incredibly well and to be part of something that is truly going to be one of the biggest sporting events of 2023. This is another bold and innovative move for NASCAR and I’m just looking forward to what’s ahead.”

The opportunity arose for Giese through her role as NASCAR’s vice president of Track Marketing. In addition to helping bring the sport to Los Angeles this season with the Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum, she was heavily involved from the early stages of development in determining whether racing in the Windy City was feasible.
