ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) — In its fifth year on the NASCAR Nationwide series schedule, Road America has proved it can put on a pretty good — and, at times, pretty wild — show with stock cars.

Now track president George Bruggenthies is after a Sprint Cup series race.

Bruggenthies says improvements have been made to the track with an eye toward landing a Cup date, adding, "Will it happen? All I can tell you is, I hope so. But we're certainly aware that the schedule is the challenge."

The possibility of changes to the 2015 schedule has been debated since NBC Sports signed on to broadcast the second half of the NASCAR schedule beginning next season.

NASCAR officials have not ruled out changing race dates, but there's been little talk of adding new venues to the calendar.
