The ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards 2019 schedule has been released and includes 20 races at 18 different race tracks in 13 states, starting with the season-opener at Daytona International Speedway in February and concluding with the finale at Kansas Speedway in October.

Other highlights on the schedule include a return to Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida, for the first time since 1992, a pair of events at both Pocono Raceway and Salem Speedway, a new May date for the event at Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville, the 77th visit to the series' home track Toledo Speedway, and the two annual dirt track events at Springfield and DuQuoin.

The series will race in conjunction with several other series throughout 2019, including the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, the NASCAR XFINITY Series, the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, the Indycar Series, the ARCA/CRA Super Series, and the USAC Silver Crown Series.

As has been the case since 1984, the races held on tracks longer than one mile will be included in the General Tire Superspeedway Challenge, while the events on tracks one mile in length and shorter will comprise the Sioux Chief Short Track Challenge. There are nine Superspeedway Challenge races and eleven Short Track Challenge races.

Milwaukee Mile is another track to add to ARCA schedule. Ask anyone whos raced there or fans of the many years of great NASCAR, IndyCar, USAC, ASA, ARTGO and ARCA Midwest Series races that have appeared at this historic racing venue. ARCA Midwest Tour will return to the Mile 6/16/2019 for a Fathers Day 75 lap race thanks to promoter Bob Sargent.

ARCA owner Bill Venturini (Venturini Motorsports) raced at the Milwaukee Mile. He made headlines with his "all girl" pit crew at the Mile. Daughter Wendy Venturini was likely on this crew and is a NASCAR media reporter. They need a Milwaukee mile reunion.
Jim Tretow, the ARCA TV announcer, is from Milwaukee and does a racing radio show at Paulies Pub across the street from the Mile track.

Natalie Decker has raced at the Mile and her dad Chuck Decker are both from Wisconsin
Plus John Menard who sponsors the ARCA Racing Series is from Wisconsin
John Menard's son Paul Menard has raced in NASCAR Xfinity races at the Mile also.


I  agree to drop one the pocono races and add another race to the schdule. They need diffrent experences at diffrent tracks and two races don't make any sence at all.

Still baffled that they insist on going to Pocono twice. Brutally bad racing, just awful. Shouldn't even go there once, much less twice.


Seat time at the track as part of the development moving up.


Drop the second Pocono anyway!!

drop one pocono add another track!
