Henry Returns As NASCAR Xfinity Series Race Sponsor
Henry Repeating Arms, widely recognized as one of America’s leading lever action firearm manufacturers, is returning to “America’s National Park of Speed” as the title sponsor of this year’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race on Saturday, July 2. As part of the patriotic weekend, the company is donating 180 tickets to past or present members of the U.S. military who register online.
“NASCAR weekend at Road America is a sight to behold, and we are excited to get back out there to experience that mix of guns and gears we love so much,” said Anthony Imperato, founder and CEO of Henry Repeating Arms. “With Road America located just a few hours from our headquarters, this race is the perfect venue for spending time with our employees and their families, meeting our fans, and celebrating our country’s military personnel. We have all been looking forward to this race weekend since it ended last year.”
Drivers will pass under Henry Bridge 45 times and complete a total of 630 turns before passing the checkered flag, and the first driver to do so takes home a custom-built Henry Big Boy lever-action rifle for their trophy shelf. In addition, another Henry trophy rifle is presented to the pole qualifier. Last year, Ty Gibbs was fastest in qualifying, and Kyle Busch won the race.
“We are incredibly proud to have a great Wisconsin brand such as Henry Repeating Arms join us as the title sponsor for the NASCAR Xfinity Series Henry 180,” said Mike Kertscher, president and general manager of Road America. “Passionate partners are vital towards the success of each event, and this relationship further exemplifies their dedication to the facility and our fans. If you’re planning to enjoy the weekend, get your tickets and camping spots soon as they are filling up fast.”
Tickets for the Henry 180 are now available online or by calling (800) 365-7223. Admission is free for kids 16-years-old and under with a paying adult at the gate.
