Johnsonville_180_Logo_ColorBy AMANDA VINCENT

As the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series both take the weekend off, the NASCAR Xfinity Series is the only national division of NASCAR in action this weekend with the running of the Johnsonville 180 at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis., on Sunday afternoon. It’s the last of the three road-course races of the season for the series. Counting Sunday’s race, four races remain in the Xfinity Series regular season.

While the Xfinity race is the only NASCAR national series race of the weekend, it’s part of a Sunday full of racing at Road America, as the ARCA Racing Series and Trans-Am Series also run at RA on Sunday, prior to the Xfinity race.

The 45-lap Johnsonsville 180 will consist of two 10-lap stages, followed by a 25-lap third and final stage.
