2024 Schedule Released
It’s HERE! We are excited to unveil our 2024 Midwest Truck Series and the return of the MIDWEST portion of our schedule as we head back to the state of Illinois for the first time in 10 years. The TruckStars will be tested on eleven different tracks over the course of fourteen races.
The season will once again kick off at Dells Raceway Park for the annual Icebreaker 50 with the Alive for 5 series. We will then head south and return to the home of the Midwest Truck Series, Madison International Speedway, on the traditional Joe Shear Classic date in conjunction with the ASA Midwest Tour.
May 18th will be announced at a later date.
Memorial Day will be spent at Golden Sands Speedway as we remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to our country with the Memorial Day 50 on Monday May 27th.
The historic Milwaukee Mile will play host to the 5th race on the 2024 schedule Sunday June 16th. Last year saw Chester Ace and James Swan bring the crowd to their feet with an epic 3 lap battle to the finish.
With a quick stop at Marshfield Motor Speedway Saturday June 22 to close out June we will roll into the Summer Heat three race July Schedule. The Prelude to the Nationals brought a big crowd to kick off the Slinger Nationals Special and once again the Midwest Trucks will take on the high banks of Slinger on Sunday July 7th. From there the Truckers will cross the Illinois boarder for the first time in ten years and head to the famed Grundy County Speedway as part of the Wayne Carter Classic on Saturday July 13th. Jerry Wood was victorious the last time the trucks went to Grundy back in 2013. Dann Barber (2012) and Erik Darnell (2011) are the only two other winners in series history at Grundy.
It's back to Jefferson for the Truck Race at Jefferson Saturday July 20th to wrap up a three race in three weeks stretch. The first Tuesday in August could be considered a Holiday for most race fans in the Midwest, usually with Kaukauna, WI the preferred destination. This year will be no different as we head to Wisconsin International Raceway along with the ASA Midwest Tour for the annual 250 and Dixieland Delight 35 show Tuesday August 6th.
It's back to Madison August Friday August 23 for the Howie Lettow Classic and then to Dells Raceway Park for the Sauter Classic just a week later. A few weeks off will give the TruckStars time to prepare for the Wisconsin State Championships at Jefferson on Friday September 20.
We will throw it back to tradition and crown the 2024 Midwest Truck Series Champions as part of Oktoberfest Race Weekend Saturday October 5th at La Crosse Fairground Speedway.
A season that mixes tradition and new excitement is shaping up to entertain fans in the Midwest at some of the biggest shows in the country. 11 out of 14 races are expected to be streamed to a national audience allowing fans all over the country to tune in. Mark your calendars, make your plans, and we will see YOU at the track in 2024.
