SPORTSKEEDA – With NASCAR coming to the streets of Chicago this weekend, McDonald’s has announced the ‘Bubba Wallace meal’ to celebrate the sport’s first-ever street race.
This Sunday’s race will go down in history as NASCAR’s first-ever venture into street course racing.
The city’s iconic Grant Park and Lake Michigan will act as the scenic backdrop against which next-gen cars will speed down the roads in Chicago.
To celebrate this historic milestone, McDonald’s has decided to collaborate with Bubba Wallace to launch an exclusive meal in the Chicago area and Northwest Indiana.
The American fast-food giants act as primary sponsors for the 23XI Racing drivers.
The meal combo comprising the driver’s favorite order will be available starting on June 25. It includes a 10-piece order of Chicken Nuggets, a medium fry, and a medium Dr. Pepper, costing $8.
The meal will be available on McDonald’s Mobile App until the race day on Sunday, July 2.
McDonald’s was also named the founding promotional sponsor of NASCAR’s Chicago Street race earlier this year.
The brand will have its presence on fences at various parts of the course and at the start-finish line. NASCAR drivers will get the fastest “drive through” experience this weekend as they whizz past the branding on both sides.
Over the weekend, the 2.2-mile street course will host The Loop 121 Xfinity race on July 1 and The Grant Park 220 Cup race on July 2 … READ MORE.
