[June 18, 2010]  ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) -- For NASCAR drivers, jet-setting between Wisconsin and California on a weekend in June is nothing new. Carl Edwards has made the most of his commute, winning the past two Nationwide races at the Milwaukee Mile.

But that might have been the Mile's last gasp. Facing financial problems, the historic oval has withdrawn from hosting major events.

Taking its place on the Nationwide schedule is Road America, a four-mile road course that zigzags through a park-like setting in scenic central Wisconsin. Edwards, Brad Keselowski and Paul Menard each will race there Saturday afternoon, then fly to Sonoma, Calif., in time for Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Infineon Raceway.
