Corey Heim (Nitro Motorsports) and Kevin Foster (OpenRoad Racing) are set to make their GR Cup Series debut this weekend at Road America.
Tyler Gonzalez (Copeland Motorsports) claimed his fourth checkered flag of the year at the last event in Nashville, Tennessee. Spike Kohlbecker (TechSport Racing) and Aidan Yoder (Precision Racing LA) also joined Gonzalez on the podium.
