Milwaukee Mile To Host 1998 Racewinner Vasser and Rookie Gonzalez in Two-Day Oval Test

INDIANAPOLIS (May 4, 2004) -- PKV Racing will begin testing on The Milwaukee Mile's venerable 1.032-mile oval tomorrow in a scheduled two-day session aimed to develop the two-car team's setup for the June 5th Time Warner Cable Road Runner 250 in West Allis, Wisc., Round 3 of the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered By Ford.

American Champ Car star Jimmy Vasser (#12 Gulfstream Ford-Cosworth/Lola/Bridgestone) will rely on past experiences at The Mile that earned him a victory in 1998, in addition to a podium result of third the year before.

PKV Racing stablemate Roberto Gonzalez (#21 NII Holdings, Inc. Ford-Cosworth/Lola/Bridgestone) will be under the tutelage of Vasser at the historic venue, as the Mexican Rookie-of-the-Year candidate will be testing an oval for the first time in his young Champ Car career.

The Milwaukee test will be the team's final tune-up before Vasser and Gonzalez hit the track in the 72-lap Tecate/Telmex Monterrey Grand Prix at Fundidora Park, May 23rd on Spike TV (4:00 ET.)
