Many of the photographs included in this album are likely from the June 1957 Road America National Championship race, the September 1957 Road America 500 race, and other races held between 1956 and 1958 at the Road America track in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. Still very much an active road course, Road America continues to host more than 450 events annually.
