2019 Midwest Tour 4 Wide Salute

(West Allis, WI) May 19, 2020 – The Sunday, June 14 racing event, scheduled for the Milwaukee Mile, in West Allis, WI, will not take place on its scheduled date due to current county restrictions and state guidelines related to COVID-19. The event was scheduled to mark the return of the ARCA Midwest Tour in addition to four other classes of cars.

Officials from Wisconsin State Fair Park, the Midwest Tour, and Track Enterprises have had numerous discussions over the past two months, waiting for a scenario that would make it possible for the race to take place. Unfortunately, fans and drivers will have to wait a little longer to head back to the historic facility. All Milwaukee County municipalities are currently still under “stay-at-home” orders, as the majority of COVID-19 cases in Wisconsin are concentrated in southeastern Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Service (DHS) has also issued guidance, which state: At this time, DHS does not advise large gatherings, and there is no projected timeframe available as to when this advisory would change. Given the state of COVID-19 transmission in Wisconsin, DHS recommends you not engage in public or private gatherings of people that are not part of a single household or living unit.

Wherever possible, DHS urges event organizers to host virtual or other non-contact events that can build the same sense of community and celebration.

Talks will continue between all parties to determine if a suitable reschedule date is feasible. For those who have already purchased tickets for the June 14 show, refunds will be issued in the very near future. More information, when it becomes available, will be available on trackenterprises.com and midwesttour.racing.

2nd Annual Racing Event Set For June 14, 2020

Written by Track Enterprises on .

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.
