Third NASCAR Cup Series Race Held at Road America
The Road America course is no stranger to racing but it’s a fairly new event on the NASCAR Cup Series circuit. This year’s Kwik Trip 250 is only the third time the four-mile road course has hosted the Cup Series.
Last year, the NASCAR Cup Series returned to the track for the first time since 1956. Chase Elliott took the checkered flag in 2021, winning the race on July 4. The 1956 race winner? Tim Flock.
This year will mark the 13th consecutive year the NASCAR Xfinity Series has run the course.
Fans of road course challenges are in for a fun one. Last year, Elliott won the race while averaging just over 86 miles per hour on the 14-turn track.
Elliott claimed the checkered flag at last weekend’s Ally 400 in Nashville. Outsider received a unique look at NASCAR’s trip to the Music City, as Jay Cutler went behind-the-scenes at the Nashville Superspeedway.
