Experience the Sights and Sounds of Live Racing Tonight at Madison

Story Image

There’s nothing like the sights, sounds, and vibrations of live racing as high flying cars and trucks race past the grandstand. See it, hear it, and feel the thunder at Wisconsin’s Half Mile tonight as four touring divisions come to town for a night of great racing. Great weather is on tap for a night of fun at Madison International Speedway.

Fans can also save big as part of Salute to the Working Man Night presented by Mini of Madison. Adult grandstand admission is just $6.00 with proof of employment. Those hard working men and women can also take part in the first-ever “Beer Mile” where one runner will win beer for a year. All you need to do is run or walk a mile, enjoy some beer, and be the first one to finish. Even if you don’t win it’s a once in a lifetime experience worth the effort.

On the track are four very unique divisions that are bringing a talented group of drivers to Madison. The Midwest Trucks began here in 1997 and are known for their close and exciting racing each time they come to MIS. This will be their third visit of the season with Chester Ace and Dave Edwards picking up the wins earlier this year.

The Great Northern Sportsman are back for their second visit with many of our weekly Sportsman drivers taking on the best from the region including several drivers making the trip in from Minnesota. Dave Trute was the winner back in June.

The four cylinders move to the half-mile tonight with the Midwest Dash Series that saw more than twenty cars back in June with the “King of the Four Cylinders” Kyle Stark taking home the checkered flag. It’s always a great show when the “little” cars take to the “big” track.

A division that is known for exciting finishes at Madison, the Mid American Stock Car Series, is also back tonight after racing back at the season opener in May. The competitiveness and close racing is what makes every visit from the MASCS a memorable one. Kenny Joosten was the big winner earlier this year.

See it all tonight under the lights at Madison International Speedway. There’s nothing like experiencing racing live and up close from the edge of your seat. Pit gates open at 3:30, practice at 5:00, qualifying at 6:15 and racing at 7:30.
