2. Brew City Banger

SATURDAY FROM 10 A.M.-10 P.M. | 640 S. 84TH ST., WEST ALLIS

Hosted by Track Day Direct, the Brew City Banger is a drift event that is here to quench your need for speed. The drift event will have around 75 cars and an on-track car show with more than 250 vehicles. There will be vendors and on track contests for attendees and night drifting later in the evening.
