Got a need for speed this Fourth of July weekend? The NASCAR Cup Series is coming to Wisconsin this weekend for a race at Road America on Sunday, July 3. But while the race is near Elkhart Lake, the party of the weekend will be in Milwaukee. 

On Saturday, July 2 – the day before the race – Deer District will host a special NASCAR on NBC tailgate experience from 2-10 p.m. The special auto racing celebration will feature a cavalcade of games, giveaways and many more high-speed hijinks, all in the shadow of Fiserv Forum in the Deer District plaza. 

As for the race itself the next day, fans can catch all the revved-up, roaring engines at Road America starting at 2 p.m. on USA Network as well as streamed on the NBC Sports website or app. 

For more information on Sunday's race and Saturday's pre-race tailgate experience, boogity boogity boogity over to Deer District's Facebook page or NBC's NASCAR site

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
