Tim Sauter Returns Home to Wisconsin
The Milwaukee Mile is special place for entire Green Light organization

Friday will be a homecoming for Tim Sauter as the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series comes to Sauter's home track, The Milwaukee Mile. Tim will be the fourth Sauter to compete in the NCTS at The Mile; his Father Jim and brothers Johnny and Jay have all previously run in NCTS races at The Mile.

The famous Wisconsin speedway was also the site of a very special day for the Sauter family. In 2002, Jim and his three sons all competed in the same NASCAR Busch Series race. Tim qualified 3rd (a career best) and finished 9th besting his family on that hot June afternoon, his highest finish at the track located only two hours from his Necedah, WI home.

"Every race is important, especially here in the trucks where the schedule is only 25 races," said Sauter. "Aside from Daytona, I think every racer looks forward to running at their home track. Nothing means more than a good finish in front of your family and friends."
