Henry Repeating Arms, title sponsor of the Henry 180 NASCAR Xfinity Series race Aug. 8 at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, is offering free general admission for the first 360 military veterans, frontline healthcare workers and first responders who pre-register with approved credentials through its website, www.henryusa.com/thankyou.
Road America encompasses 640 acres, allowing amazing viewing opportunities in a socially-distanced environment.
“Our communities’ first responders and frontline healthcare workers have stepped up to the plate to keep us all as safe and healthy as possible amid this COVID-19 pandemic, and we can’t thank them enough for it,” said Anthony Imperato, president and owner of Henry Repeating Arms. “These dedicated professionals have earned the opportunity to take some well-deserved time for themselves, and enjoying a race with us at Road America is something we’re proud to provide.”
Along with military veterans, first responders and frontline healthcare workers, Henry Repeating Arms is inviting more than 100 employees from its manufacturing facilities, the largest of which is just a few hours west of Road America in Rice Lake, Wisconsin. All will have a driver to cheer for during the Henry 180, as Stewart-Haas Racing’s Chase Briscoe will pilot the No. 98 Henry Repeating Arms Ford Mustang in the 45-lap race around the spacious 4.048-mile, 14-turn road course.
Briscoe leads the Xfinity Series in wins this season with five, the most recent of which came July 4 on the road course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It was Briscoe’s second road-course win in the Xfinity Series, as the 25-year-old racer from Mitchell, Indiana, won his first career race at the Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway Roval in 2018.
The Henry 180 begins at noon EDT on Saturday, Aug. 8 with live coverage on NBCSN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
