ARCA Midwest Tour Sets 2014 Schedule


The ARCA Midwest Tour presented by SCAG Power Equipment and Lester Buildings has announced its schedule for the 2014 season.

The ARCA Midwest Tour and the CRA Super Series will open their perspective seasons at the famed Toledo Speedway with the Border Wars 7-Up 150 April 11-12

The Tour will then kick off the remainder of the season with the sixth annual Joe Shear Classic May 3-4 at Madison Int’l Speedway.

As the Tour leaves the half-miles behind for a while, they head to the historic short track of State Park Speedway on May 17 for the State Park Speedway 125.

Border Wars II will roll into Illiana Motor Speedway May 25-26 of Memorial Day weekend. This will mark the return to Illiana for both the Midwest Tour and the CRA Super Series for a 150-lap showdown.

The highly anticipated event at the Milwaukee Mile makes the biggest move of the year. The third annual ARCA Fest Swiss Colony Howie Lettow Memorial 150 will take place on a weekend for the first time, June 6-8.

On June 20, the cars and stars of the ARCA Midwest Tour will head to Chicagoland for the prestigious Wayne Carter Classic Calypso Lemonade 100 at Grundy County Speedway in Morris, Ill.

The ARCA Midwest Tour will return to Dells Raceway Park for a 100-lap event June 28. Last year’s sell-out crowd proved that fans wanted to be at the center of short-track racing in Wisconsin.

After a several year hiatus, the series will be heading back to Wisconsin Int’l Raceway Aug. 9 for their largest Saturday night special event of the season sponsored by Calypso Lemonade.

The Upper Peninsula of Michigan will once again come to life Aug. 15 as the Touring Stars of the ARCA Midwest Tour will invade Norway Speedway, which has been dominated by local talent in previous years.

Racers and fans agree that Elko Speedway is considered the Taj Mahal of short tracks in the U.S. The Tour returns on Sept 20 for the Thunderstruck 93 weekend honoring Dan Ryan while benefiting the ALS foundation.

A season of excitement comes to an end at Oktoberfest in La Crosse, Wis., Oct. 4-5.
