Coverage from Road America begins Friday at noon ET with practice on NBCSN, and continues Saturday at 5:30 p.m. ET with qualifying, prior to Sunday’s race coverage.

Both Tracy and Bell experienced success on the track in recent days. Bell and his Ferrari team finished first in their class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 19, while Tracy was victorious at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association’s Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational. Tracy won top honors in the “B Production” class in a 1965 Ford Mustang GT 350.
