Road America is one of those tracks. The kind of track that drivers and fans alike circle on a season schedule and mark on their calendars. It’s one of those tracks that everyone simply says, “I need to be there.”
And it shows. The Trans Am Series will be visiting Road America this coming weekend and bringing with it a 35-car field; the highest to visit the fabled track since 2000.
Within that 35-car field will be a total of 17 TA2 cars, a record high for the Trans Am Series, passing the prior record set at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park earlier this year. The TA2 class has grown by leaps and bounds since its installment in Trans Am during the 2011 season as more and more drivers have committed to the Chevrolet Camaros and Ford Mustangs that make up the class.
