NEWS & NOTES
This is the first time since August 29, 2004, that an ASA-sanctioned event has competed at the Milwaukee Mile. Bryan Reffner won that event with Kevin Cywinski in second and Toby Porter in third. Tim Sauter was fourth and Scott Legasse Jr. rounded out the top five.
Carson Hocevar, who already has one victory this season in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series this season, has been busy the last two weeks. In the past 14 days, he has competed in six events that include one NASCAR Cup Series start, one NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start, three nights of racing at Eldora Raceway, and the recent Money in the Bank 150 at Berlin Raceway. This is his first time visiting the Milwaukee Mile, his seventh event in that time period.
Heim, Hocevar, along with five-time ASA Midwest Tour champion Ty Majeski will be back at America’s Legendary Oval as the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series will make its return on Sunday, August 27th for the Clean Harbors 175.
