Milwaukee Mile Press Conference Reveals More Details

Tickets for June 16th Event on Sale March 4th

(Milwaukee, WI) A large contingent of media members gathered for the official press conference that detailed the return of racing to Wisconsin State Fair Park’s Milwaukee Mile. The Father’s Day Special is set for Sunday, June 16th at the historic oval.

At the conference, longtime race announcer and Milwaukee Mile supporter Jim Tretow welcomed everyone with the opening statement. Among the speakers were Track Enterprises President, Bob Sargent, John Yingling, Board Chairman of Wisconsin State Fair Park, John DeAngelis, Jr., ARCA Midwest Tour racer, and Ron Nelson, who will be bringing Vintage Indy race cars to the event.

The on-sale ticket date of March 4th was released. Tickets will become available on that date, via the Internet, by phone, or at the box office. In addition, it was announced the headlining event for the ARCA Midwest Tour will be 100 laps.

The race will be the first event held on the oval since 2015, when the IndyCars made their most recent appearance. For the ARCA Midwest Tour, their most recent Milwaukee Mile event was 2014. The tour has seen some very good names enter victory lane as NASCAR Cup Champion Kyle Busch, fellow Cup driver Erik Jones, and Travis Sauter have won in previous events at the facility.

As previously announced, other classes in action that day will be the Mid-American Stock Cars, Midwest Super Trucks, and the Upper Midwest Vintage Series.

Newly added to the schedule, much to the delight of open wheel fans, are the entries from the Vintage Indy Registry. A full field of Vintage Indy cars will take the track for a couple of sessions on raceday, as well as practice day, Saturday.

It’s all set for Sunday, June 16th with a 1:00 PM race time. Open practice Saturday is set for 11:00 AM-3:00 PM, while Sunday’s schedule will see practice from 9:30 AM-11:00 AM with qualifying at 11:00 AM.
