Champ Cars To Light Up 100th Anniversary Of Milwaukee Mile

INDIANAPOLIS–-The historic Milwaukee Mile on the grounds of the Wisconsin State Fair Park has seen a myriad of things during its 100 years, but this year's Champ Car World Series stop will bring something entirely new to the venerable mile oval.
When the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford takes its 750-hp road show to Milwaukee for the 102nd Champ Car race in the history of the Milwaukee facility, it will happen under the lights at night for the first time ever.

The night race, which will take place Saturday May 31, will be the culmination of a year of changes for the Milwaukee Mile, which celebrates its 100th season in 2003. The newly refurbished facility has installed new grandstands and improved amenities for the fans, and will give them the chance to see Paul Tracy defend his 2002 Milwaukee win under the glare of Musco lighting.

Does this mean we'll have all day to go to the Harley factory, Circus World, Taliesin, etc etc. before having to go to the track? Wow.

But I guess this is the end of CART's Friday night bowling tournament. Kind of disappointing, really -- where else would the average person get to bowl against Bob Varsha?

It will be at about 1 or 2am your time, so stay up all night and party.

Sounds good - as long as the night races stay limited to one or two races I am al for it. Adds to the variety that makes Champ Car the best - Ovals, Super Speedways, Street Courses, Airport Venus, Road Courses, and racing in the day AND at night

Right on DNQ. More variety. But no more than a few races.

How about a night race through Rio streets during Carnival ?

What I'm wondering is whether it'll get any prime time air play -- seems to me that during the height of baseball season it's likely to be on "tape delay" the next day.

Unless of course it's running on Speed Channel.
