WinkTimber Posted April 21, 2012 Report Share Posted April 21, 2012 A very typical Southern Wisconsin spring day, with partly cloudy skies and predicted temp around 50 degrees. Currently in the upper 30s, but pleasant with little wind. The town of Elkhart Lake depends largely on tourism for its livelihood, and on a morning like this it is quiet, interrupted only by the birds singing courting melodies.Built in the 1950s as a response to concerns over driver and spectator safety at street races, Road America was well named as it is America's premiere road racing facility. It has been the site of famous racing battles in Trans-Am, Can-Am, Indycar, IMSA, ALMS, NASCAR (Nationwide Series), and of course, SCCA club racing including the popular June Sprints and the SCCA Runoffs.The ChumpCar drivers meeting is taking place now. No sprint races here. The schedule calls for a 7 hour race on Saturday and another on Sunday. At last count there were 48 cars being readied for the grid.
