The Chicago Motor Speedway located in Cicero, just outside of Chicago, Illinois, was built in 1999 by a group including Chip Ganassi, owner of Chip Ganassi Racing. In 2002 the 1.029 mile oval shaped track suspended operations due to financial conditions in the motorsports industry. The track was also the site of horse races, when the track was called "Sportsman's Park". The track was one of two racetracks that hosts both auto and horse races (the other is Dover International Speedway).

The track held CART races from 1999 to 2002, and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series (CTS) races in 2000 and 2001. The 2000 CTS race was won by Joe Ruttman, and the 2001 CTS race was won by Scott Riggs.

Currently no races are held at the track.
