Nationwide Series Returns To Wisconsin

Posted:

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) -- NASCAR's Nationwide series will stay in Wisconsin next year, shifting its race next year to Road America from the financially troubled Milwaukee Mile.

The twisting road course in central Wisconsin will host a Nationwide race on Saturday, June 19.

That replaces the Milwaukee Mile, which will not host major racing events in 2010. The Wisconsin State Fair Park board of directors, which oversees the Milwaukee track, has been unable to make a deal with a new promoter but still hopes to bring major events back there in 2011.
