Wallace to bring fan excitement and momentum to Milwaukee Mile in July

March 28, 2013 (West Allis, Wis.) - Joining a growing list of all-star drivers competing in the Swiss Colony Howie Lettow Memorial 150 presented by RaceTeamGear.com event July 8-9 at The Milwaukee Mile is one of the most affable characters in all of NASCAR, accomplished racer and TV personality Kenny Wallace.

One year ago, his older brother Rusty Wallace came out of driving retirement to compete in the inaugural Howie Lettow 150 and will be listed as Kenny's car owner. This year, among the stellar field of expected driving talent Kenny will face includes uber-popular NASCAR champion driver and Wisconsin native Matt Kenseth.

"Rusty told me DO NOT take this race lightly because the best are there!" Kenny emphatically stated in a recent interview. "I studied Rusty's situation (last year) real close. My number one goal is to make the feature."

Growing up in St. Louis, Mo., Kenny said it was a big deal in the late 1970's as an impressionable teenager to come to Milwaukee to work on Rusty's crew and served as a rear tire changer.

38 SPECIAL Concert Added to Stellar Short Track Racing Program

February 11, 2013 (West Allis, WI) – For American stock car racing fans, the Daytona 500 is the biggest event on their calendar. As the Great American Race is upon us, one event many Midwest short track racers considered “their 2012 Daytona 500” was held at the Milwaukee Mile last June.

Over 12,000 spectators turned out on a warm Tuesday night to witness third-generation Wisconsin racer Travis Sauter beat several NASCAR stars – in a field of 71 super late model racers – to score a popular victory in the 150-lap Midwest Tour super late model race at the historic Milwaukee Mile.

This summer, the highly-anticipated event returns to the Milwaukee Mile and moves to the second Monday and Tuesday in July. Event organizers, building on the success of last year, are adding a Monday night concert featuring the heritage Southern rock band 38 Special.

With sales in excess of 20 million, 38 Special will headline “ARCA Fest” on Monday night, July 8th performing their arena-rock pop smashes “Hold On Loosely,” “Rockin’ Into the Night,” “Caught Up in You,” “Fantasy Girl,” “If I’d Been the One,” “Back Where You Belong,” “Second Chance,” and more.

The Midwest Tour, now under the sanction of the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA), will again be the headline division, with soon-to-be-announced NASCAR stars racing Tuesday night, July 9th against a deep field of the country’s best racers led by the ECHO and ECHO BearCat Touring Stars of the ARCA Midwest Tour presented by SCAG Power Equipment & Lester Buildings.

Tickets for the July 8-9, 2013 “ARCA Fest” go on sale Friday, February 22nd at 10:00 a.m. Central Time online at www.ARCAfest.com.
