The Sprint Cup Series is off this weekend before returning next week for one of its biggest races of the year, the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis.

But don't worry - there's still plenty of racing as the Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series take on Chicagoland.

The rare standalone weekend puts the spotlight on the regulars in both series, with just one full-time Sprint Cup driver competing this weekend (that's Kyle Busch in the Nationwide Series).
