ELKHART LAKE, Wis., – March 2, 2022 – The NASCAR Cup Series will return to America’s National Park of Speed on Sunday, July 3, over the Fourth of July holiday weekend for the Kwik Trip 250 presented by JOCKEY Made in America. Fans are encouraged to get their tickets and reserve camping early as Road America officials expect another incredible crowd. The green flag drops at 2 p.m. Central, and NASCAR’s top stars will battle 62 laps / 250 miles on the storied 4-mile, 14-turn road circuit.
“NASCAR has already seen tremendous crowds at the first few events in ‘22, and our weekend, June 30 through July 3, is already showing strong sales,” said Mike Kertscher, Road America’s President and General Manager. “The on-track intensity is going to ramp up even more for this year’s race as NASCAR’s Next-Gen cars will battle on America’s favorite road course for the first time. If you’re planning to enjoy the weekend, get your tickets and camping soon as spots are filling up fast.”
Road America also wants to remind fans that off-site parking will be FREE, and a shuttle will be available both to and from the track on race day. Anyone expecting to park on the grounds should get their tickets and parking early as parking on race day (Sunday Only) will sell out.
