NASCAR will spend July 4 weekend in Elkhart Lake, Wissin, for the second consecutive year as Cup drivers test their skills on the road course at Road America.
This will be the third road-course race for the Cup Series this season, and the first two races produced first-time winners. Ross Chastain scored his first career Cup win at the Circuit of the Americas on March 27. His Trackhouse Racing teammate, Daniel Suarez, finally broke through for his first career Cup win at Sonoma Raceway on June 12.
But the favorite will surely be defending race winner Chase Elliott, who became the first Cup driver to win at Road America since 1956. Elliott, who has two wins this season — on the one-mile oval at Dover International Speedway in May and last week on the 1.33-mile Nashville Superspeedway — will seek his 16th career Cup victory and seventh on a road course after previous wins at Watkins Glen International, the Daytona International Speedway road course and the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval.
