When you think of IndyCar, you probably think of Indianapolis. If you do have plans to go to the Indy 500, here’s a blog post I wrote on what to expect while you’re there. While Wisconsin isn’t the birthplace of the IndyCar series, it does have an extensive motorsports history and some iconic racetracks. The one you’ll find on the IndyCar circuit today is Elkhart Lake’s Road America, located in Sheboygan County.
Back for a double header in 2020, the REV Group Grand Prix Presented by AMR takes place July 9th through the 12th and is open to fans. This outdoor venue in the Kettle Moraine State Forest is a beautiful place to enjoy live sports again while keeping a respectful distance from others. You can even order themed face masks from the IndyCar online store to look festive on race day! Here is some information about the track and the race:
Driving to Road America
Road America lies about an hour north of Milwaukee and just over an hour south of Green Bay, but you’ll want to set aside even more driving time to navigate the crowded roads around the track. Parking in one of the many grass lots is included with your ticket purchase.
Track & Event Information
- Bring lawn chairs or a blanket to sit on during the race in case the bleachers are full or closed
- Camping is allowed at Road America for race weekend and throughout the summer
- Concession stands can be found throughout the grounds
- Drones are not allowed to be used on the grounds
Tickets can be purchased in advance on Road America’s website here. Purchasing tickets before race day is recommended to reduce in-person contact, but the ticketing office is open and practicing safe procedures for those who want to purchase their tickets on-site.
