Elkhart Lake, WI — The WeatherTech International Challenge with Brian Redman presented by Hawk returns to Road America July 19-22 as one of the nation’s largest vintage racing gatherings. As of Friday (June 29), 350 cars were already registeredahead of Monday’s final deadline for contests in 17 different race groups.
Among the race action on tap Sunday afternoon is a Formula 5000 feature (1 p.m.) to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the popular open-wheel racers, as well as a Historic Trans-Am feature (2:15 pm). See the provisional full schedule.
The track will also mark the 52nd anniversary of the Canadian-American Challenge Cup, known as the Can-Am Series, with one of just three contests on the Can-Am schedule this season. Much of its history was made at Road America — Bruce McLaren’s team won five years in a row (1967-1971), twice with McLaren and once each with Denny Hulme, Peter Gethin and Peter Revson — before Roger Penske’s team achieved Porsche-powered victories with George Follmer in 1972 and with Mark Donohue in 1973.
