    Just a reminder to put this event on your calendars. Once again the Harry A. Miller Club will be hosting Millers at Milwaukee on July 8th and 9th at the Milwaukee Mile Race Track. Admission covers both days, parking and entrance to the pit area. Last years event had 53 vintage race cars from all years. They're amazing to look at in the pits, and you can't beat the sound of them running laps on the track.

    I think I may try to hit this one. I would love to see these cars in person!

    Are spectator tickets sold at the gate?

    It says track time is 11-4. Is that also the hours for the event? or is stuff also going on before or after the track time?

    Do these guys actually race, or just putt around the track? One at a time?

    Tickets are sold at the gate. You're required to sign a waiver for those that have issues with those kind of things. According to this site http://02a1392.netsolhost.com/mcvcg/2011/06/23/millers-at-milwaukee-auction-of-rarities/
    gates open at 11 am on Friday. On Saturday, there is an auction from 8 am to 11 am, with gates opening at 7 am for those attending the auction. My experience the past few years has been at the end of track time, everyone is packing up to leave.

    You Tube has quite a few videos of past events for those that are interested.

    The “mac miller specials” had a great weekend at the fabulous “Millers at Milwaukee” vintage meet July 8 & 9.
    The Bob Dicks’ 1963 #98 “Agajanian” Watson roadster and the Carl Schulz’ 1927 #15 “Boyle Valve Spl.” Miller were on the Milwaukee Mile, virtually non stop, from the first green flag at 11 AM on Friday until the final “checker”at 4 PM on Saturday.
    In addition to regular team drivers, Bob Dicks, Carl Schulz, mac miller and Randall Cook, it was the team’s pleasure to have several notable guest “wheelmen” running lap sessions, including Roy Caruthers, Andy Hurtubise, Chris Paulsen, Josh Shaw, Brad Edwards and Michael Ferner. We would like to thank these guys for helping us make the “mac miller specials” the lap leaders for the weekend.

    We love the Millers at Milwaukee! and want to thank everyone involved in organizing & conducting the meet , all of the car owners, who bring their wonderful cars and all of the fans who come to be part of the scene.

    THANK YOU ALL!!!!

    Thank you Mac and everyone else for a great display of history and performance! The auction was also something to see.

    As I was looking at this Bandini roadster (Matt) walks up and says hop in lets go for a ride! Wow what a treat! Thanks Matt!

    If you have not had a chance to see this event you should try to go next year.
