While the NASCAR Cup Series is enjoying its last off-weekend of the season and the Camping World Truck Series is also off, there will still be racing this weekend.

The NASCAR Xfinity Series will visit Road America for Sunday’s Johnsonville 180.

This is the eighth Xfinity Series race to be held on Road America’s 4.048-mile road course.

The first six race winners there were Carl Edwards (2010), Reed Sorenson (2011), Nelson Piquet Jr. (2012), A.J. Allmendinger (2013), Brendan Gaughan (2014) and Paul Menard (2015).

Michael McDowell won last year’s race, leading half (24 laps) of the 48-lap event. Gaughan finished second, followed by Brennan Poole.

This will be the third road course race for Xfinity drivers in the last four events, and the final one of the season for the series.
