“We are counting down the days until we can get out to Road America for what is going to be a huge, patriotic weekend. You can’t go wrong with the mix of guns, gears, and fireworks right in our back yard at one of the beautiful motorsports venues in the country,” says Anthony Imperato, President and Owner of Henry Repeating Arms. Imperato continues, “We are big Harvick fans, so to have him behind the wheel is exciting for us. Being first through the checkered flag in the Henry car at the Henry 180 would be the cherry on top. No pressure, Kevin.”
