The Dixieland 250 for the ARCA Midwest Tour at the tricky Wisconsin International Raceway has become one of the biggest Super Late Model races of the year in the upper Midwest, and this year fans all around the world can once again watch the race live via a pay-per-view stream on Speed51.com.
This year’s Dixieland 250, on Tuesday, August 7th, is the richest one-day Super Late Model race in the state of Wisconsin, paying $10,000 to the race winner. The live stream can be purchased for just $19.99.
The Dixieland 250 is expected to attract Super Late Model stars from across the region, including current NASCAR Xfinity driver and four-time ARCA Midwest Tour champion, Ty Majeski. Current ARCA Midwest Tour points leader Austin Nason will also be in competition with the hopes of expanding his current 12-point lead over last year’s Dixieland 250 winner, Casey Johnson. NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Johnny Sauter is also expected to be in competition as well.
One year ago, NASCAR’s Kyle Busch ventured north with his Kyle Busch Motorsports team and took the checkered flag at the end of 250 laps after a six-lap shootout. However, a weight violation resulted in a disqualification for Busch and the victory was given to Casey Johnson. The victory was the first for Johnson with the ARCA Midwest Tour.
“Last year’s Dixieland 250 was a thriller of a race,” said Speed51.com’s Editor, Brandon Paul. “We’re thrilled to have the chance to bring this race to the masses once again and be able to offer a pay-per-view so people all over the world can see it. Wisconsin International Raceway is a unique and challenging race track and it always puts on a great show. I can’t wait to watch this one and I hope that my fellow short track racing fans will watch along with me.”
Speed51.com’s live pay-per-view stream of the Dixieland 250 on Tuesday, August 7 will begin at approximately 6 p.m. ET/5 p.m. CT with qualifying.
