Canada, eh?
Despite the demise of the Milwaukee Mile, NASCAR still plans to come to Wisconsin in 2010. Elkhart Lake's Road America -- arguably the best road course in the country -- will host the Nationwide Series on June 19, the date that had been held for the Mile. That will make for a road-racing doubleheader weekend for NASCAR, with the Sprint Cup Series in Sonoma, Calif. Stock cars aren't entirely new to RA. Tim Flock won in NASCAR's premier division in its only appearance in 1956. Lower divisions have competed at the track, including the defunct NASCAR Midwest Series in 2001, a race won by current Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series driver Paul Menard.(Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)(12-21-2009)

Very cool. It's the same weekend the Cup drivers are in Sonoma. What drivers will be doing the 'double'? Boris Said & Ron Fellows have to be pi$$ing their pants over this. I'm glad to see that NASCAR didn't just add a second date to one of the cookie cutter tracks. :bigthumbup:

I can only imagine that NASCAR will make the track shorten the course for the stockcars as they have at Watkins Glen and Sears Point for the Cup cars

I'm slowly becoming a road course fan. Seeing as how there aren't any more short tracks coming along....I'll take this over the 1.5 layout.
