lmost as soon as SAAC’s North-

woods Region (members fromWiscon-

sin and Minnesota, mostly) was

organized back in 1976, they began

holding at least one open track event

a year at Road America in Elkhart

Lake, Wisconsin. We were jealous. At

four miles in length, it was the longest

road course in the U.S. and had every-

thing: elevation changes, tight corners,

a carousel, high speed sweepers and

three long, top end straights. Throw in

a lush country setting and a nearby

small town overflowing with midwest

hospitality. Did we miss anything? Oh

yeah – bratwurst. After one visit we

developed a taste for brats. Road

America had the best track food of any

road circuit in the country. Period.
