The 16th Annual Millers at Milwaukee Vintage Indy Car event will be organized by the Harry A. Miller Club on July 9-10, 2010, at the Milwaukee Mile at Wisconsin State Fair Park in suburban West Allis.
A draw for collectors and enthusiasts of antique racing cars, especially those from car and engine designer Harry A. Miller, the event features front-engine pre- and post-WWII Indycars, Champ Cars, and Roadsters. Gates open Friday at 11 a.m. and Saturday at 8 a.m., with cars on the track from noon to 4 p.m. Friday and between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
"Millers at Milwaukee offers its participants exponentially more track time than other events," said club president Dana Mecum. "Car owners typically drive 50 to 100 laps on the famous Milwaukee Mile's oval, which is where Millers were originally designed to run. So, if you really want to exercise your vehicle, this is your can't-miss event of the year!"
This year’s event is dedicated to the club's founder, David V. Uihlein Sr., who passed away earlier this year. His wife, Margery Uihlein, will serve as Grand Marshal for the event.
Millers at Milwaukee, which draws about 50 cars each year, is open to the public, and allows attendees admission to the pits for a close inspection of these unique vehicles. The $25 individual weekend ticket includes parking.
Active Miller Club members are encouraged to enter their cars into the meet, as the entry fee is only $300 per entrant, which includes unlimited track time, unlimited number of cars, and admission to the banquet. For further information, please visit www.harrymillerclub.com or call (262) 253-2661.
