  • Illinois has a rich motorsports tradition and is home to over 40 racetracks and the businesses that support them.
  • The safe resumption of racing would provide desperately needed economic stimulus to Illinois and a morale boost to its residents.

Overview: The Illinois Motorsports Coalition (IMC), a group comprised of racing facilities across Illinois, has submitted an 8-step plan to Governor J.B.
