When NASCAR announced the fourth installment of racing as racing returned amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it kept the Henry 180 at Road America on track for Saturday August 8th.

Additionally, the race will have full track-side fan attendance as well.

Not only is Henry Repeating Arms the title sponsor of the 2020 Henry 180 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Road America located in Elkhart Lake, WI but the company will also continue its partnership with Stewart-Haas Racing

The company who’s manufacturing facility is located only a few hours away in Rice Lake, WI will serve as primary sponsor on current NASCAR Xfinity Series points leader, Chase Briscoe’s No. 98 Ford Mustang.

In a press release, Henry Repeating Arms President and Owner, Anthony Imperato said, “Everyone has had a tough year so far as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, so we’re chomping at the bit to get back to Road America with the fans and make a lot of noise at the Henry 180.”

Additionally, Imperato also went on to say, “The great state of Wisconsin is home to both Road America and our largest manufacturing facility in Rice Lake, so we’re looking forward to getting our employees out to the track and cheering on Briscoe who has had an incredible season so far.”

Drivers in the NXS will have a chance at getting their hands on only one of two rifles made for the event.

The No.1 starter will receive a custom Henry 180 Edition Golden Boy .22 lever-action rifle, while the race winner will receive a Henry 180 Edition Big Boy .44 Magnum lever-action rifle.

That isn’t all the Wisconsin based company will be doing for the race just a few short weeks away.

To give thanks to those who serve their communities and country, Henry Repeating Arms is offering free general admission to race day for the first 360 military veterans, medical workers, and first responders that pre-register through Henry’s website at

The promotion mentioned above is open to all military veterans, and all first responders including doctors and nurses in Wisconsin who are directly involved in the response, diagnosis, and treatment of COVID-19.

The Henry 180 NASCAR Xfinity Series race will be televised live from Road America at 12:00 PM ET on NBC Sports (NBCSN), Saturday, August 8th.
