NASCAR will travel to Plymouth, Wisconsin to participate in the July 4th race, which will be held on the track called Road America.
The U.S. Jockey Maker 250 event held by KwikTrip on Sunday will be the first NASCAR Cup series event on the track; the last time NASCAR’s premier track was in 1956, when it was called the “Grand National”.
In any case, Sunday’s race-one of only seven road tracks in the 2021 season-provided a chance for non-Hendrick racing teams to board the checkered flag after a four-week suspension. Before Kyle Larson won the first game of the double header in Pocono on June 26, his teammate Alex Bowman won three consecutive victories.
Drivers have only seven games in the regular season schedule-including Sunday-to get a place in the 16-car playoffs. Only 11 drivers have won the NASCAR race this season, leaving enough room for the other 5 drivers to get a place. Assuming there will be more repeat winners, then the top unwinner drivers—Danny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, Kurt Busch, Taylor Redick and Austin Dillon—must Consolidate his good position in the subsequent games.
