TRAVIS SAUTER BRINGS HOME THE TROPHY IN THE HOWIE LETTOW MEMORIAL 150 AT THE MILWAUKEE MILE!

By Kari Shear-Carlson - ASA Midwest Tour

When Travis Sauter took the lead he took it for good taking home the Swiss Colony Howie Lettow Memorial 150 presented by RaceTeamGear.com at the Milwaukee Mile. “This is just huge,” said a smiling Sauter from victory lane.

Forty-two cars started in the ASA Midwest Tour presented by SCAG Power Equipment and Lester Buildings event. Bondurant, IA driver, Thor Anderson and Dillon Oliver led the field to the green after a 13 car invert. It did not take long for Oliver to take over the lead as Anderson drifted back.

On lap four, the #53 of Jerry Sharp hit the wall in turn two bringing out the first caution of the night. As the field went back to green, Oliver continued to lead, with a hungry Travis Sauter running in the seventh position at the time.

ECHO and ECHO Bear Cat Touring Star, Jonathan Eilen was the highest finishing ASAMT driver of the night. At one time he was battling Jeremy Lepak for the lead until another caution came out for a spin in turn two. Eilen continued to run strong all night ending up in fourth.

Elliott, Kenseth and their sons join charity race at Milwaukee Mile

Written by Dave Kallmann of JS Online on .

A little ol' charity race on a regional circuit has quickly evolved into a national showcase.

A second Hall of Famer in waiting, one of today's top talents and each of their sons all plan to compete in the Howie Lettow 150 on June 12 at the Milwaukee Mile.

Bill Elliott committed this week. (Update - Bill Elliott will be participating in VIP events at the track, but not actually racing.)

Not that he needs any introduction, but Elliott won the 1988 title, a pair of Daytona 500s and 42 other races in NASCAR's premier division.

Matt Kenseth said yes to ASA Midwest Tour this week, too.

One of Wisconsin's favorite racing sons, the 2003 champ and winner of two of the past four Daytona 500s, he'll be a big draw. A late-model race at the Mile used to carry his name, and yes, he won it once.

Speaking of sons, Elliott and Kenseth will compete against theirs.

Chase Elliott is 16, a Hendrick Motorsports prospect and one of the hottest late-model drivers in the South. Ross Kenseth, 18, is one of his rivals fresh off his first big late-model victory in the South.

I have to admit, I was at least a little skeptical at first about this race on a Tuesday night in June.

Howie Lettow, a hugely successful local crew chief, commanded respect and deserved that any race in his honor should be one of the best. The same for the MACC Fund, the cancer research organization.

But with these latest additions to a strong field of less-heralded but nonetheless talented regulars - and the previously announced Rusty Wallace, a 50-race winner and 1989 NASCAR champ - most doubts ought to be erased.

As special events go, this one is looking awfully special.
