NOTES OF INTEREST
The American Le Mans Series will hold its first race ever at the famous Road America circuit. The Road America 500 is a traditional big event for the Wisconsin venue. Road America, at four miles in length, is the longest track on the American Le Mans Series schedule, and the 500-mile race will be the third-longest on the schedule. Many current ALMS drivers have raced on the Road America circuit in Trans-Am and CART events, as well as in other forms of road racing.
