We Americans like things fast: We think fast, we talk fast, we want our dinner in 30 minutes or less. Henry Repeating Arms is part of why the rest of the world thinks of us as so speedy ... after all, those 19th-century lever guns let us shoot fast long before there was such a thing as a semi-auto! In fact, the only thing we like as much as shooting fast is driving fast. That's why it's no surprise to see the company returning to “America’s National Park of Speed” in 2022. As the title sponsor of this year’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race on Saturday, July 2nd, Henry's also celebrating the Fourth of July weekend by donating 180 tickets to past or present members of the U.S. military.

Should the drivers have occasion to look up from the road, they'll see the Henry Bridge at least once of the 45 times they'll pass under it. They will also complete a total of 630 turns before passing the checkered flag. 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.
“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.”
“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.”
