It’s time for street racing.

NASCAR heads to Road America, a 14-turn racetrack in Elkhart Lake, Wisc, for a July 4th weekend extravaganza.

Georgia’s Chase Elliott has momentum on his side after winning at Nashville last week and at Road America last year, and he leads all drivers with seven career road wins. But there are plenty of other worthy contenders who will try to knock him off the podium.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Kwik Trip 250 at Road America:

Which active drivers have won at Road America?

Sunday will only be the third Cup races at Road America (held in 1956 and 2021), making Elliott the only past winner in the field.

Cindric, Bell, Kyle Busch, AJ Allmendinger and Michael McDowell – all of whom will drive on Sunday – have won Xfinity Series races at Road America, as the second-tier NASCAR series has raced there annually since 2010.

NASCAR Road America Betting Odds, Favorites, Predictions

It’s difficult to get in the way of Road America as 2021 was their first Cup race in 65 years.

Elliott dominated last year, as he often does on street courses, leading 24 of 62 laps to win by over five seconds. Bell, Kyle Busch, Kurt Busch and Hamlin rounded out the top 5. Byron won pole, led the second most laps (15) and won a stage, but he finished 33rd after overshooting a corner on the final laps – so he’s another to watch this year .

Trackhouse Racing won the first two road races of 2022 – first by Ross Chastain at COTA and then by Daniel Suarez at Sonoma.
