Siebkens Resort is like home. It has been a long time since I first started coming to Elkhart Lake for races, but I had the opportunity to witness the charm and tradition of this racing town on a non-race weekend, and it was great. And 90% of my time was spent at Siebkens Resort. The 'Tavern' experience still brings me back to all the great memories I have made over the course of my racing career. The same family still owns and operates this resort since 1916. That in itself is amazing. And they always remember their long time customers. The 'Elm Park' hotel is quaint and simple and for someone who travels a majority of the year for work, I welcome this old school way of travel. It is a great way to shut down and appreciate the decor that has been preserved since the 'Siebkens' family took over in the early 1900's. To top off this great weekend, I had drinks in the cocktail bar, and had a famous sandwich that tasted the same as it did 15 years ago. I look forward to getting back up to Elkhart Lake and Siebkens to have some fun and shut down and enjoy a place so dear to my heart.
