ST. LOUIS (October 4, 2023) – NASCAR today released its 2024 schedules for its three premier series. World Wide Technology Raceway’s third annual Enjoy Illinois 300 NASCAR Cup Series race once again will occupy the traditional first weekend of June.
The NASCAR Cup Series Enjoy Illinois 300 is slated for Sunday, June 2, 2024, at 2:30 p.m. Central.

“We are proud to host the cars and stars of the NASCAR Cup Series again in 2024 after the resounding success of the Enjoy Illinois 300 in 2022 and 2023,” said Curtis Francois, owner and CEO of World Wide Technology Raceway. “We strongly believe in date equity and hosting the event the first weekend of June for three consecutive years firmly establishes a tradition for race week in the Metro East and St. Louis region.
“We continue to evolve from our findings and constant communication with our loyal fans and community supporters. Once again in 2024, NASCAR weekend will include an incredible line-up of national recording artists for the Confluence Music Festival, the JJK 5K to benefit the Jackie-Joyner Kersee Foundation, and all of the spectacular fan enhancements that make World Wide Technology Raceway unique.”
The Confluence Music Festival concerts are included in the price of admission. Special Friday activities will be announced soon, and they will be available exclusively to those who secure their tickets by December 31, 2023.
