| Winning the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) June Sprints at Road America has been every sports car driver's dream since the thrilling first event in 1956. That's when a tall, curly-haired chicken farmer from Texas named Carroll Shelby drove all night to make the race, jumped into the cockpit of a Ferrari 121 LM without even changing out of his work clothes - striped farmer's overalls - and won the 152-mile feature. No one back then knew that his win would set the tone for his momentous racing career, the eventual establishment of his own Cobra automotive company and racing team, and his role as an inspiration to thousands of racers and enthusiasts worldwide. Will one of this year's winners be destined for a similar path?
Although the days of legendary drivers the likes of Roger Penske, Mark Donahue, Carroll Shelby, August Pabst and Bill Wuestoff thundering along the straights and corners of Road America are gone, new thrills and memories have yet to be made as generations of racers and their families will flock to the WeatherTech Chicago Region SCCA June Sprints presented by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel for their chance at glory. This year, over 350 sports car drivers are scheduled to compete June 14-17, as the June Sprints are the first trophy stop to win amateur racing's most prestigious title, the Triple Crown® of Racing. To earn this title, competitors must win in their class at the June Sprints, win their respective divisional title and win at the SCCA National Championship Runoffs® which are scheduled for September 20-23 at Road America.
Everything from showroom stock to highly modified purpose-built race cars are schedule to fill four days of practice, qualifying and racing at this year's June Sprints. With Road America's park-like setting, trackside viewing, up-close access to drivers and teams; and legendary cuisine appealing to drivers and fans alike, it's no wonder the WeatherTech Chicago Region SCCA June Sprints remains one of the nation's premier amateur sports car racing events.
Daily admission to the June Sprints is $10 Thursday, $15 Friday, and $25 each for Saturday and Sunday. Kids 12 and under are always free with an adult. Gates open at 7 a.m. and races run rain or shine. For more information, call 800-365-RACE (7223) or visit www.roadamerica.com
