Third Champ Car Town Meeting of 2003 slated for Milwaukee.

INDIANAPOLIS (April 18, 2003) -- Continuing with the plan to bring key figures in the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford to the fans in and around its race markets, Champ Car will conduct another event in its ever-popular Town Meeting series as it visits Milwaukee -- site of the May 29-31 Milwaukee Mile Centennial 250 Presented by Miller Lite -- at the end of this month.

The Milwaukee Town Meeting will get underway at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, April 28th at the Wisconsin Exposition Center, 8200 W. Greenfield Ave. in nearby West Allis, Wisconsin. Fans can register to receive free tickets to the event by going to the official website of the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford, www.champcarworldseries.com. Registration for the event will begin online Wednesday, April 23rd.

Milwaukee will see another blue-ribbon Champ Car panel featuring points leader Paul Tracy (#3 Player's/Indeck Ford-Cosworth/Lola/Bridgestone) of Player's/Forsythe Racing who's established a new Champ Car World Series standard by winning the first three rounds of the season. Joe Chrnelich, CEO of Wisconsin State Fair Park which features the fabled Milwaukee Mile oval, will also be Champ Car's guest that evening and the festivities will be hosted by local motorsports luminary David Hobbs. Additional panel members are expected to be announced in the coming days.

The Town Meeting concept made its popular debut last year in Columbus, Ohio and gives local Champ Car fans a chance to ask questions of a star-studded panel comprised of the best and brightest personalities of the Champ Car World Series. The Milwaukee Town Meeting follows successful forums hosted on the West Coast in both Portland and Long Beach earlier this year.

The May 31 Saturday Champ Car night race at The Milwaukee Mile will be the culmination of a year of changes for the track celebrating its 100th birthday this summer. The newly-refurbished facility has installed new grandstands and improved amenities for the fans, and will give them the opportunity to see the red-hot Tracy try to defend his 2002 Milwaukee win under the illumination of Musco lighting on the final weekend in May.
