Wisconsin International Speedway is preparing for one of its biggest events of the year as some of the best Super Late Model drivers in the Midwest will race on a Tuesday night under the lights. Sanctioned by the ARCA Midwest Tour, the Dixieland 250 is one of the most anticipated races in the region and draws in fans from all over.
For some, the trip to Kaukauna, Wisconsin is too far but fans can still tune into all the action as Speed51.com has you covered.
“As we continue to re-establish this as a premier event in the Midwest, we felt it was important to once again showcase what our teams are doing in the ARCA Midwest Tour to fans worldwide,” said ARCA Midwest Tour Owner/Promoter Gregg McKarns. “There is a wealth of talent throughout the field at various stages of their careers. We look forward to showcasing our racers and our style of racing to fans who are unable to make it out to the race track.”
The stream will be available to a world-wide audience, bringing exposure to the drivers on a national level.
The current entry list for the Dixieland 250 serves as a who’s who of Midwest Super Late Model racers. A stout field of drivers will show up to challenge 2015 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Champion Kyle Busch who will be returning to Kaukauna after a nine-year absence.
“Anytime you add Kyle Busch’s name to a short track race it brings the excitement to a whole new level,” said Speed51.com Editor Brandon Paul. “The fans will be excited, but the racers will also be ready for the challenge. This should be a fun race to watch with a former Cup champion going up against some of the Midwest’s best.”
Among the drivers expected to challenge Busch will be Midwest Late Model star Ty Majeski, who will also return to the Dixieland 250 after recently making his NASCAR XFINITY Series debut with Roush Fenway Racing.
Other Midwest stars including Dalton Zehr, Dan Fredrickson, Travis Sauter and former Snowball Derby champion Rich Bickle will also be contending for the race win.
The Dixieland 250 is available for purchase for $19.99. The one-camera broadcast, which will feature sound from the track’s public address system will showcase all 250 laps of the Dixieland 250.
More information about the broadcast will be released prior to the race on August 1. To order pay-per-view video tickets today, click here.
