ELKHART LAKE, Wis., June 18, 2013 - This Thursday NASCAR Nationwide Series team haulers will gather at Times Printing Company in nearby Random Lake, Wis., prior to their convoy to Road America for the Johnsonville Sausage 200 Presented by Menards. Last year's hauler parade drew hundreds of NASCAR fans and an impressive welcome was also extended between local residents.
