The NorthernTool.com 250 was a NASCAR Nationwide Series race held at the Milwaukee Mile. From 1984-1985, the race was 200 laps, 200 miles (321.9 km) long. From 1986-1992, no race was held. In 1993, the race returned, and was increased to 250 laps, 250 miles (402.3 km), a distance it has remained at since. The race was traditionally held Sunday afternoons, while the Winston Cup Series was either off or at a different venue, but starting in 2004, the race has been run on Saturday night.
Until the race sponsor changed to Camping World in 2008, the sponsorship of this race was not affected by the September 7, 2007 settlement between AT&T and NASCAR in regard to a grandfathered sponsorship deal, as Anheuser-Busch, the sponsor of the now NASCAR Nationwide Series at the time of the lawsuit, was not associated with the wireless industry. The 2010 race has been canceled and the date has been moved across Wisconsin to Road America.
