NASCAR Trucks returning to the Milwaukee Mile in 2023

WEST ALLIS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- After over a decade's long absence, one of NASCAR's top three series will return to the Milwaukee Mile when the NASACAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series comes to town on Sunday, Aug. 27, 2023.

In addition to hosting the Truck series, the Mile will also host the ARCA Menards Series, as it has for the past two years. Racing action will take place both Saturday and Sunday of the event weekend.

Track Enterprises of Macon, IL, has been promoting the ARCA events at the Milwaukee Mile for the past several years and will continue its partnership with Wisconsin State Fair Park to bring NASCAR back to the Cream City.

"We're honored and proud to help Wisconsin State Fair Park bring NASCAR racing back to the Milwaukee Mile," said Track Enterprises' Bob Sargent. "A historical venue like the Mile deserves great racing and the NASCAR Trucks always puts on a great show."

In 1995, the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series began racing at the Mile in its inaugural season and the event remained on the calendar until 2009.

“The Milwaukee Mile is a fan-favorite, and some of NASCAR’s biggest stars scored early career wins at the historic one-mile oval,” said Ben Kennedy, NASCAR Senior Vice President of Racing Development and Strategy. “What’s more, this race will serve as the second race in the Truck Series Round of 8, adding even more anticipation for what is sure to be a thrilling return to the Mile.”

"After several successful ARCA races in recent years, the State Fair Park Board of Directors is thrilled to continue this momentum and welcome NASCAR back to the historic Milwaukee Mile,” said John Yingling, Wisconsin State Fair Park Board Chairman. “This event wouldn’t be possible without the hard work and dedication of the Track Enterprises team, the State Fair Park staff and the State of Wisconsin Administration. We look forward to an exciting weekend of racing next August and more events like it in the future.”
