Champions Brock and Wilson Amongst Early Entries for Milwaukee Mile Father’s Day 100
West Allis, WI- Championship winning drivers Josh Brock and Donnie Wilson are among the early entries for the Father’s Day 100 being contested on Sunday afternoon June 16 at the Milwaukee Mile. Brock, the 2018 ARCA/CRA Super Series Champion from Corbin, KY and Wilson, the 2016 Southern Super Series Champion from Oklahoma City, OK will both be aiming to make the 32-car feature field when racing returns to ‘America’s Legendary Oval’ for the first time in four years.
Making his first ARCA Midwest Tour appearance, Brock has teamed up with former Touring Star Chris Wimmer in recent seasons, with the duo securing top honors in ARCA/CRA Super Series competition last season following a thrilling run in the Winchester 400.
The former Corbin Speedway Track Champion ventured out to California in 2010, winning an open wheeled modified event at All-American Speedway before returning home to go undefeated at Corbin in 2011.
After a strong start to his 2017 campaign which found him atop the CRA point standings, Brock was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in July. Following months of treatment, Brock was pronounced cancer free on January 1 of 2018, allowing him to return to the seat and victory lane for his first CRA Super Series win.
After a five year hiatus, Donnie Wilson will return to ARCA Midwest Tour action. Arguably one of the more successful Super Late Model Drivers in the nation, this will be Wilson’s first tour start since a top five effort at Toledo (OH) Speedway in 2014.
Wilson, who calls Oklahoma City home, has found much success south of the Mason Dixon Line, he now hopes to bring that success to the Midwest. The 2016 Southern Super Series Champion has recorded two wins at the Nashville Fairgrounds, including being the most recent winner of the All-American 400 at the famed half mile oval.
Brock and Wilson will be joined by the ‘Stars and Cars’ of the ARCA Midwest Tour for the Sunday afternoon Special Event. Joining the Midwest Tour Super Late Models will be the Vintage Indy Registry, Midwest Truck Tour, Mid-American Stock Car Series and Upper Midwest Vintage Series.
