The Super Late Model tour of the upper midwestern region will compete throughout Illinois and Wisconsin to competed on paved ovals ranging from a quarter of a mile to a mile and a quarter in length.

The most notable addition to the schedule is the return to WWT Raceway at Gateway on August 22 alongside the NTT IndyCar Series and Gander RV NASCAR Truck Series for the Gateway Classic Super Late Model Showdown.

Ty Majeski snuck past Paul Shafer, Jr on the final circuit when the Tour last visited the one and a quarter mile oval located just outside of St. Louis.

Following a one-year hiatus, a facility near and dear to the heart of series promoter Gregg McKarns will return in the form of Grundy County Speedway in the Wayne Carter Classic 100 on July 11.

In another highly regarded return, the Milwaukee Mile is also back on the schedule for a second consecutive season. This time, Super Late Models will return to America’s Legendary Oval on Sunday, June 14.

The season will begin with the Joe Shear Classic on Sunday, May 3 with a $10,000-to-win, 200 lap race at ‘Wisconsin’s Fastest Half Mile.’ The season will end with the prestigious 51st annual Oktoberfest race weekend at the LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway in Western Wisconsin.

Speaking of Wisconsin, the state’s richest one day race is again scheduled for the first Tuesday of August in the form of the Dixieland 250 at Wisconsin International Raceway on August 4.

The Gandrud Auto Group Dixieland 250 will continue to pay the largest purse in the state’s celebrated asphalt Super Late Model racing industry. With the winner’s share having gone to Minnesota and Alabama previously, Ty Majeski made sure it stayed in-state following a dominating performance last August, out pacing John DeAngelis, Jr and former ARCAMT Champ Dan Fredrickson.

New for 2020, will be the Midwest Tour’s involvement in the All-American Weekend October 31 and November 1 at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway.
