The historic Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona is one of the most well-known sports car races in the world. An endurance battle that attracts the best manufacturers and drivers from around the world, this race is on any true race fan’s bucket list. Aside from that, it should be on the bucket list for any sports fan in general. Unlike other historic and thrilling endurance races that are better suited for a more mature audience (looking at you, Sebring 12 Hours), the Rolex 24 is without a doubt one of the most family friendly races around. Kids 12 and under are free, and there is plenty to see all race weekend long.
The annual race weekend at Road America that features the NTT IndyCar Series will see a new title sponsor in 2019 thanks to REV Group, Inc. The Milwaukee-based manufacturer of industry-leading specialty vehicle brands and provider of parts and services signed a deal to become the title sponsor of what will now be known as the REV Group Grand Prix to be held June 20-23. REV Group, Inc. takes over as title sponsor after Kohler sponsored the race for the past several years.
As the sports enthusiast I have been my entire adult life, one of the great joys I have is traveling across the country searching out, finding, and learning the sports history in every state I visit.

After their recent announcement regarding the track’s naming rights deal with Michelin, Road Atlanta began this month its construction of the new front stretch tower. The speedway began by dismantling the old tower. Track officials filmed the destruction of the old media tower and put together a time lapse video for fans to see their progress.
Homestead-Miami Speedway prides itself on being one of the top speedway destinations in America. That has been reflected in the track’s facility upkeep, modernization, and overall fan satisfaction. It continues to be host to a variety of events outside of NASCAR’s Ford Championship Weekend as well, with club racing and various track day events taking place on the premises throughout the year.
