"LeBron James Speedway" will host Chicago's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in July if James accepts an offer from Chicagoland Speedway president Craig Rust.
On Thursday, Rust sent James a letter inviting the to-be NBA free agent to the LifeLock.com 400, which his track will host July 10. Besides re-naming the track in James' name for the weekend, Rust would also have a "Lebron James Speedway" logo printed on limited edition merchandise, painted on the front stretch of the infield and incorporated into signage throughout the speedway.
"As a special VIP guest, you will be given the honorary title of 'King' of our NASCAR weekend," Rust wrote in the letter, released by Chicagoland Speedway.
Rust also lured James with a chance to address the fans and drivers before the race.
