ELKHART LAKE, Wis. – This Thursday NASCAR Nationwide Series team haulers will gather at Times Printing Company in nearby Random Lake, Wis., prior to their convoy to Road America for the Johnsonville Sausage 200 Presented by Menards. Last year’s hauler parade drew hundreds of NASCAR fans and an impressive welcome was also extended between local residents. Times Printing and Road America expect even greater hauler participation and attendance this year and encourage all fans, residents and businesses along the route to participate in welcoming the return of the NASCAR Nationwide teams to Sheboygan County.
The haulers will gather for the party at Times Printing Company in Random Lake between 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Fans are invited to attend, free of charge. The Random Lake Fire Department will hold a brat fry fundraiser featuring Johnsonville brats on-site in conjunction with the party and the event will be held rain or shine.
The convoy to the track will depart around 5:30 p.m. following Hwy 57 north. After turning west on County Road J, the convoy will proceed north on Hwy 67 to Road America.
The race weekend will be filled with Trans-Am action on Friday, followed by stock car excitement on Saturday including the SCOTT® 160 ARCA Series race and incredible wheel-to-wheel battles later in the day with the Johnsonville Sausage 200 NASCAR Nationwide race presented by Menards.
