ELKHART LAKE, Wis. — Will history repeat by not repeating at Road America?

Never in the 12 previous Xfinity races at this 4.048-mile road course has the same driver won more than once.

Only three drivers in Saturday’s field have won in the Xfinity Series at Road America: AJ Allmendinger (2013), Jeremy Clements (2017) and Justin Allgaier (2018).

Kyle Larson, making his first Xfinity start since 2018, will start on the pole for Saturday’s race on USA Network.
