Milwaukee has a long and storied tradition in auto racing. The Milwaukee Mile is the oldest active racetrack in the world, having hosted races dating back to 1903. However, after years of decline with a variety of event promoters, the INDYCAR sanctioning body took Milwaukee off its 2012 calendar. That was a blow to our proud city. But, thanks to Andretti Sports Marketing stepping in to resurrect the event with only a few months to prepare, Milwaukee's racing lore continues.
