ELKHART LAKE — Road America will be hosting the NASCAR Cup Series in July 2021, the track announced Wednesday.
The race weekend will take place July 1 through 4, 2021 at Road America in Elkhart Lake.
The event will take place 11 years after Road America hosted the NASCAR XFINITY Series in 2010. Since then, fans have been asking for the NASCAR Cup Series to take place at America's National Park of Speed.
"The weekend is going to be memorable and exciting for everyone as we celebrate Independence Day at America's National Park of Speed. We encourage new and returning fans to get their tickets and campsites early because we intend to host four full days of on-track action," said Road America's President and General Manager, Mike Kertscher.
Word of the race leaked to teams Tuesday night, but confirmation didn't come until early Wednesday.
