Road America, located in Elkhart Lake, WI, is widely known as one of the finest racing circuits in the US. It hosts over 450 events year-round and has recently begun expanding its events to include ATV adventure trails, karting, geocaching, basic rider courses, and much more. The 4-mile, 24-turn racetrack draws the best professional racers from around the world every year.
I’ve taken the liberty of picking out a few of the best events (and my personal favorites) upcoming at Road America this year. As a professional video recorder, I won’t be spending much time cheering on the racing, but I’ll be capturing the entirety of the heart-pounding events—in stunning 4k resolution! I’ll be posting up highlights from each event on the blog, so if you’re unable to attend, be sure to check back often!
Now that I’ve provided a bit of info, let’s get down to business! Here are some fantastic and exciting Road America racing events to check out this summer.

Since I specialize in paint protection and window tinting services in Milwaukee, WI, I recommend paying attention to the conditions of the cars you check out during your visit. The exceptional attention to maintaining the aesthetic value of each car is rather refreshing. When it comes to everyday cars, the results are not typically so lovely. A properly maintained car, both aesthetically and mechanically, makes a world of difference!
