WEST ALLIS, Wis. – Event organizers have been forced to postpone the scheduled event on June 14 at The Milwaukee Mile due to current county restrictions and state guidelines related to COVID-19.
The event was scheduled to feature the ARCA Midwest Tour and four other classes of cars.
Officials from Wisconsin State Fair Park, the ARCA Midwest Tour and event promoters Track Enterprises have had numerous discussions over the past two months, waiting for a scenario that would make it possible for the race to take place.
Unfortunately, fans and drivers will have to wait a little longer to head back to the historic facility. All Milwaukee County municipalities are currently still under stay-at-home orders, as the majority of COVID-19 cases in Wisconsin are concentrated in southeastern Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin Department of Health Service has also issued guidance, which state: At this time, DHS does not advise large gatherings, and there is no projected timeframe available as to when this advisory would change. Given the state of COVID-19 transmission in Wisconsin, DHS recommends you not engage in public or private gatherings of people that are not part of a single household or living unit.
Wherever possible, DHS urges event organizers to host virtual or other non-contact events that can build the same sense of community and celebration.
Talks will continue between all parties to determine if a suitable reschedule date is feasible. For those who have already purchased tickets for the June 14 show, refunds will be issued in the very near future.
