The ASA Midwest Tour along with Kwik Trip Stores and Trackside Charities are donating $3 of every adult ticket sold at its event at MIS on Friday, July 20th to the Special Olympics Wisconsin.

"One of the goals of our series is community involvement," Steve Einhaus, Vice-President/Event Director of the ASA Midwest tour stated. "Special Olympics Wisconsin shows the spirit of great competition with some of the most outstanding athletes in the State. We are happy to support this great organization."
