Oregon, WI- The 2020 race season at Madison International Speedway will include 17 events on ‘Wisconsin’s Fastest Half Mile’ oval, six Street Drag events and for the first time ever, an event on a ROVAL (Road Course and Oval) circuit. Street Drag action will kick off the season on Sunday April 26, followed by the $10,000 to win Joe Shear Classic 200 featuring the Stars and Cars of the ARCA Midwest Tour on Sunday afternoon May 3. Weekly NASCAR Racing will begin on Friday night May 15.
Two new dates await the two National Series at MIS, with the USAC Silver Crown visiting a week earlier this year to contest the Bytec Dairyland 100 on Father’s Day Weekend, Friday June 19. Moving from their traditional June date is the ARCA Menards Series, now slated for Friday Night August 7. The National tour which will begin their season in less than two weeks at Daytona International Speedway, will be joined by the Big 8 Late Model Series when they invade MIS later this summer.
The NASCAR Late Models, Dave’s White Rock MISfitz and Pellitteri Waste Systems Bandits will once again highlight weekly Friday night racing and will be joined by various guest divisions throughout the season including the Roto Rooter 6shooters, 602 Late Models, Midwest Trucks, Bandoleros and the all new High School Racing Association. The Late Models and MISfitz will be joined by the Midwest Trucks during Salute to America Night on Friday June 26, featuring ‘the Area’s Biggest and Best Ground and Aerial Fireworks Display’. Additionally, a special Hobby Stock Challenge set, with a double header weekend split between MIS and Jefferson Speedway on Memorial Day Weekend and a second stop on Madison’s ‘Ring of Fire’ July 31.
Super Late Models will be featured on the highbanks three times. Sunday May 3 will play host to the Joe Shear Classic 200 for the ARCA Midwest Tour, which will return on Friday August 28 for the Howie Lettow Classic 100. Twin 50 features take top billing on Friday May 29, as the second round of the Alive for Five Series once again comes to MIS for the Capital Classic. Last season, Bubba Pollard, Skylar Holzhausen, Jonathan Eilen and Ty Majeski each found victory lane at the Oregon, WI speedplant.
The Racers’ Reunion on Friday Night July 24 invites all former drivers that have competed at the track throughout the years to come enjoy a full program of racing. Whether the track was known as Oregon Legion Speedway, Capital Super Speedway, Impact Speedway or the current Madison International Speedway, past drivers will be admitted at no cost when they RSVP in advance. An autograph session is planned as part of the evening’s festivities to allow fans a chance to reconnect with their heroes. Additional details will be available in regards to this new event.
Six Street Drag events are set for 2020, the first happening on Sunday afternoon April 26 during the Super Sunday Spring Street Drags. The second Thursday of the month will feature twenty brackets of drag racing on a 300’ strip for double elimination runs, May 14, June 11, July 9, August 13 and September 10. In addition to the brackets which average over 200 entries, the Shine ‘N Show contest will once again join the popular gathering.
A new event coming to Madison International Speedway this September is the first ever 2.4 Hours of Le MIS. The Impact Survival Series is set to take on a ROVAL (Road Course and Oval) configuration at the fifty-one year old facility, Labor Day Sunday afternoon September 6. The race format which has no yellow flags and that leaves cars where they sit once abandoned, promises to be one of the more unique Motorsports events ever held at MIS. A near record 119 entrants took the green flag in the final ISS race of 2019.
