Short Track Series To Draw From Texas , Oklahoma , Wisconsin
Milwaukee, Wis. (March 5, 2007) – The United States Super Trucks will be an added attraction on The Milwaukee Mile’s popular NASCAR Busch Series race date, according to speedway officials.
The USST is a national series that competes primarily on half-mile to one-mile oval tracks, featuring purebred race trucks that produce about 450 horsepower from their performance V8 racing engines, with expected speeds at America’s Legendary Oval to top 140mph. The USST will conduct all of their on-track activity on Saturday afternoon, June 23rd.
“With the growing popularity of the USST and in a combined effort with USST principal Eric Caudell, we are expecting entries from Minnesota , Iowa , the I-70 Super Trucks from Missouri , Oklahoma , Texas , Illinois and Wisconsin ,” commented Chris Stocks, USST North Series Director. “The excitement is already building among our teams and USST series sponsors, eager to get the opportunity to race on one of America ’s most storied race tracks.”
It just so happens the debut of the USST at America ’s Legendary Oval on Saturday, June 23rd coincides with the highest-attended Motorsports event day in the state of Wisconsin . The USST events will serve as a prelude to the highly-anticipated AT&T 250 NASCAR Busch Series race that evening.
“We are always looking for added value for our fans, and the USST will bring another exciting race event to an already stellar race weekend,” stated Andy Randall, Milwaukee Mile President & CEO. “The Friday night, June 22nd Toyota Tundra Milwaukee 200 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race and the Saturday night June 23rd spectacle of the AT&T 250 NASCAR Busch Series race will feature some of the finest American stock car talents. The USST event will only add to the experience of our fans on one of our biggest race event weekends.”

The tentative schedule has morning practice sessions planned for the stars of the NASCAR Busch Series competing in the AT&T 250 on June 23rd, followed by the complete USST on-track schedule of practice, qualifications and feature event.
