NASCAR Stars, Short Track Talents Teaming Up for Charity Event June 12th

CONCORD, NC  – Officials from the American Speed Association (ASA) Midwest Tour announced today Speed51.com, the leading short track news and information website, would be the Official News Site for the Swiss Colony Howie Lettow Memorial 150 presented by raceteamgear.com, held Tuesday, June 12th at the famed Milwaukee Mile in Wisconsin.

Speed51.com will provide information on the event leading up to raceday and then be the only source for live Trackside Now and in-depth coverage from the Super Late Model event honoring the midwestern short track scene’s most innovative and legendary crew chief, the late Howie Lettow. NASCAR drivers, many of whom drove under the tutelage of Lettow through the years, plus the ASA Midwest Tour regulars and short track stars from around the country will converge on the Milwaukee Mile for the historic facility’s first stock car event since 2010.

The Swiss Colony Howie Lettow Memorial 150 presented by raceteamgear.com is the culmination of two years of hard work by ASAMT officials and the cooperation of many NASCAR drivers such as Jimmie Johnson, David Stremme, Ted Musgrave and Tony Raines, who have all been contacted about the event and wish to help honor the short track legend.


“We wanted to put together a special event to honor Howie and we’ve worked with guys like Jimmie Johnson, who drove for Howie years ago, on it,” added Einhaus. “Our focus is to make it a charity event. Howie was someone who cared so much about young drivers and he wanted to help everyone. It didn’t matter who it was.

“We want to give this event a major charity theme. We’ve teamed up with the MACC Fund, which supports the research for cancer and blood disorders in children. It’s a very popular charity in this area. The idea is to bring in as many, if not all, of the drivers that raced for Howie over the years if we can. All of them have said they want to support the event. They are all interested in coming back to celebrate and honor Howie, while also raise a significant amount of money through this event.”
