The Milwaukee area will be hosting a national snocross race next month.
The Milwaukee Mile National Snocross Race will be held on the Wisconsin State Fair grounds at the Milwaukee Mile race track in West Allis Dec. 18 and 19.
The race will be the second of nine national events in the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series. It features pro racers from 37 states, regional amateur competitions and freestyle performances.
The Wisconsin State Fair’s director of events, Andy Schmidt, says the Milwaukee Mile had snowmobile races there in the 1970s
