Tomorrow is Memorial Day, a day to remember those who have given their lives in service of our country. Today, however, is a day of racing and a different kind of remembrance.
The Milwaukee Mile in West Allis has played host to racing nearly every year since 1903. To give you some comparison, the inaugural Indianapolis 500 was held in 1911. Perhaps the racing series most closely linked to racing in Milwaukee is IndyCar .
The IndyCar series finale, held Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, was supposed to be a celebration.
The mere mention of the Indianapolis 500 brings to mind memories of the excitement , the speed, the glory and the danger of races past.
