Kluever Returns Home To The Milwaukee Mile
CONCORD, N.C. -- Todd Kluever has been looking forward to racing at The Milwaukee Mile all year. He considers Milwaukee his home track since it is the closest Busch Series track to his hometown of Sun Prairie, Wisc., (located just outside of Madison).
"I love racing at Milwaukee because it's home for me," Kluever said. "The track is about an hour away from where I grew up so I'll have a lot of family and friends there to support me and the team. We'll also have a lot of people there from 3M since they are headquartered in Minnesota which is not too far away either.
"The track itself does not really suit my driving style since I prefer banking to the flat tracks, but it's still a lot of fun to race there. I had a top-10 finish in the Craftsman Truck race last year, and I'd like to back that up in the Busch car this year. We're taking the same car that Mark Martin finished fifth with in Phoenix earlier this year, so we know we've got a good car."
Kluever has more experience at The Milwaukee Mile than most NASCAR tracks. Not only did he compete in the Craftsman Truck Series race there last year, he also ran an ASA race in 2004, and a few MARS Late Model races at Milwaukee.
Currently Kluever sits 17th in the Busch Series point standings. He has gained six positions in the points in the last four races. In 16 starts this season he has two top-10 finishes and one pole. He is third in the Raybestos Rookie point standings, one point out of second and 14 points out of first.
