Ryan Hunter-Reay, #31 American Spirit/Ford-Cosworth/Reynard

Milwaukee Stats: Hunter-Reay dominated the Milwaukee Mile Toyota Atlantic event in 2003. He was the fastest driver all weekend; the rookie won the pole position and nearly lapped the field in the race before his engine expired with just 27 laps to go.

No Limits: Hunter-Reay will be appearing with the Microsoft No Limits tour next Wednesday, June 4th at the Microsoft TechEd trade show at the Dallas convention center in Dallas, Texas. Hunter-Reay will be available for questions and autographs.

Pick'em: American Spirit Team Johansson will be accepting entries for the "Pick the Podium" contest until the start of the first practice on Thursday. The contestant who chooses the top three finishers of The Milwaukee Mile 250 will win a Stefan Johansson wrist watch. Visit www.AmericanSpiritTeamJohansson.com to play.

American Spirit Gear: Check out the American Spirit website or the online store at CART.com to purchase American Spirit Team Gear. There will be several new items available beginning this weekend, including the team jersey.

Hunter-Reay on The Mile: "Milwaukee brings back bittersweet memories for me. I led nearly the whole race there last year and my engine blew, it would have been my first win of the season, so I feel like I have some unfinished business at the historic Milwaukee Mile. Hopefully I can make up for it this year. I am really excited about racing at night; I think that should be awesome and create a great show for the fans. It makes sense to do something special at Milwaukee; it is a very unique place. We really worked on our oval set-up at Germany, the car was still not where we needed it to be by the end of the weekend, but we learned a lot and we look forward to improving at The Mile."
