This two-day event attracts collectors and enthusiasts of antique race car engine designer Harry A. Miller and features front engine pre- and post-WWII Indy cars, Champ cars and Roadsters. Gates open Friday at 11 a.m. and Saturday at 8 a.m. Cars will be on the track from noon to 4 p.m. Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
“Millers at Milwaukee offers its participants exponentially more track time than other events,” said Dana Mecum, president of the Harry A. Miller Club. “Car owners typically drive 50 to 100 laps on the famous Milwaukee Mile’s oval race track, which is where Millers were originally designed to run in the first place. So if you really want to exercise your vehicle, this is your can’t-miss event of the year!”
The 2010 Millers at Milwaukee 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 to get into the Milwaukee Mile pit and check out these unique vehicles up close. Admission is $25 per person (includes parking) for the weekend pass.
Active Miller Club members are encouraged to enter their cars into the meet. The entry fee for this exciting weekend event is only $300 per entrant, which includes unlimited track time, unlimited number of cars and admission to the banquet. To request an entry application, call Lenore at 262.253.2661.
