West Allis, WI – After a highly successful 2019 return to racing at the famed Milwaukee Mile, officials from the Wisconsin State Fair Park and Track Enterprises are happy to announce that stock car racing will be back on Sunday, June 14 for a second annual event.
Last year, four divisions of racing put on a great show for a large group of race fans hungry for action at the Milwaukee Mile. Over 100 drivers were on track for the 2019 race with Austin Nason besting a field of nearly 40 Super Late Models in the headline event.
“It was a huge win for us last year, being the first race there in many years. Really looking forward to going back, as it’s a really fast track and close to home,” stated Nason, last year’s winner.
The ARCA Midwest Tour Super Late Models will again headline the show in 2020 with a 100-lap event. Joining them will be the Midwest Trucks, Mid-American Stock Cars, and the Upper Midwest Vintage Series.
A practice day is planned for Saturday, June 13 with final practice, qualifying, preliminary events and feature racing getting underway at 1pm on Sunday, June 14, with the main events to follow. There will also be a street drag event on Saturday night, once open practice comes to an end.
Track Enterprises, one of the nation’s leading motorsports promotions companies, produces over eighty events annually throughout America’s Heartland. Former Auto Racing Promoter of the Year, Bob Sargent, and Track Enterprises are proud to bring racing back to The Milwaukee Mile for the second year in-a-row.
“The turnout for last year’s event was better than expected, even with the less than favorable weather that we had. We are really looking forward to making this year’s event even better after having last year under our belt,” stated promoter Bob Sargent.
The Milwaukee Mile is the oldest operating motor speedway in the world, opening in 1903 and hosting major racing events through 2015. Auto racing icon A.J. Foyt competed in more races at the legendary oval than any other facility. It is the largest, most storied oval track in the state. Many Wisconsin short track racers have stated that getting to race there is their equivalent to racing at Daytona International Speedway. The track is located at Wisconsin State Fair Park in West Allis, WI, a suburb directly west of Milwaukee.
Advance sale tickets will be available in the coming days, online, at the box office, and by phone. Those with camping spots at the 2019 event are welcome to call the Track Enterprises office and hold your spot for this year’s event.
