Big 8 Late Models Headed to Milwaukee Sunday Aug 29th - Join ARCA Menards Series at Americas Legendary Oval
Jeremy Miller claims victory in the first-ever Big 8 visit to the Milwaukee Mile on June 12th, 2012.
(West Allis, WI) The oldest operating motor speedway in the world is ready for two big events in 2021, featuring a number of popular touring series. The Milwaukee Mile, located at Wisconsin State Fair Park in West Allis, WI, will host events on Sunday, June 20 and Sunday, August 29. Tickets for the two Track Enterprises promotions are set to go on sale Monday, January 11.
After a one year hiatus due to the pandemic of 2020, the ARCA Midwest Tour will return to the Mile on Sunday, June 20 to headline a Father’s Day Special. In racing’s return to the oval in 2019, Roscoe, IL driver, Austin Nason, bested a field of 36 drivers to take the victory. The Midwest Truck Series, Mid American Stock Cars, and Upper Midwest Vintage Series will also be on track for the event.
A second exciting event is set for Sunday, August 29, as the ARCA Menards Series will make its first appearance at the track since 2007 when Frank Kimmel claimed the victory. Other former ARCA winners at the Milwaukee Mile include Dean Roper, Dave Weltmeyer, and Phil Bozell. The Big 8 Late Model Series will also be in action.
This will be the series' 3rd visit to the Milwaukee Mile located in West Allis, WI. The last time the Big 8 Late Models were in action at the 'Legendary Oval' was back in 2013. Casey Johnson powered his way to victory in the Howie Lettow Memorial 38 lap event. Jeremey Miller captured the win in the first-ever series visit to the speedway in 2012.
