INDIANAPOLIS (April 23, 2003) -- Registration is now available to Champ Car fans for the next installment of the Champ Car Town Meeting series Monday, April 28th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, site of the May 29-31 Milwaukee Mile Centennial 250 Presented by Miller Lite for Round 6 of the Champ Car World Series.
The Milwaukee Town Meeting will get underway at 7:00 p.m. on Monday at the Wisconsin Exposition Center, 8200 W. Greenfield Ave. in nearby West Allis, Wisconsin.

Champ Car World Series points leader Paul Tracy (#3 Player's/Indeck Ford-Cosworth/Lola/Bridgestone) of Player's/Forsythe Racing and Champ Car Ladder System standout A.J. Allmendinger of the CART Toyota Atlantic Championship will highlight the Town Meeting panel. After winning the first three rounds of the season, Tracy was named driver of the season's first quarter, a prestigious award presented by Legends Marketing Group which recognizes the best drivers in North American auto racing. Allmendinger, one of the top up-and-coming American open wheel racers, won the second round of the CART Toyota Atlantic Championship earlier this month at Long Beach in only his second race in the Atlantic series. Also included on the Town Meeting panel are Joe Chrnelich, CEO of Wisconsin State Fair Park which features the fabled Milwaukee Mile oval, and Champ Car Vice President of Communications Adam Saal. The evening's festivities will be hosted by local motorsports luminary David Hobbs.
Earlier in the day on Monday, both Tracy and Allmendinger will be on hand at the Milwaukee County Historical Society for a VIP luncheon and the grand opening of The Milwaukee Mile's Centennial exhibit celebrating 100 years of racing at the storied facility. Both drivers, who will be competing at The Mile in their respective series May 29-31, will be signing autographs from 3:00 -- 4:30 p.m. (CDT) at the Historical Society located at 910 N. Old World Third Street in Milwaukee.
The Champ Cars will race under the lights for the first time ever Saturday, May 31st at the Milwaukee Mile, where Tracy will be looking to defend his 2002 title, and Allmendinger will make his competitive oval racing debut in the Toyota Atlantic cars.
