Legends & Icons Tour

Stacks Image 1908

In addition to returning to Gateway Motorsports Park August 23-24 for the second annual edition of “Open Wheel Icons”, in conjunction with IndyCar’s Bommarito 500, the cars of the Vintage Indy Registry™️ will also appear at the historic Milwaukee Mile on June 15-16. The Milwaukee, Legends at the Mile, event will be in companion to the ARCA Midwest Tour’s Father’s Day 75 promoted by Bob Sargent’s Track Enterprises, Inc. The Father’s Day weekend event marks the first return since 2015 of a major motorsport event to the Mile.

A full field of vintage Indy cars are expected to take to the famed oval for multiple track sessions each day and the vintage Indy car paddock will be open to all ticketed race fans who desire up close encounters with these iconic machines. The Milwaukee Mile is steeped in over 100 years of Indianapolis championship car racing history, and as the oldest operating motor speedway in the world it has hosted Indianapolis championship car events since 1903. For many decades, beginning in 1947, the Mile held the distinction of hosting the “first championship car race after Indy.” In the 1969 Indy racing film, Winning, the starring actor Paul Newman’s character, Frank Capua, remarks, “Everybody goes to Milwaukee after Indianapolis!” In keeping with this past tradition, the Vintage Indy Registry
™️ is excited to bring these legendary cars to the Milwaukee Mile in June.

Moreover, a special thank you to Gateway MSP Owner Curtis Francois, sponsor John Bommarito and VP/General Manager Chris Blair, along with Sally and the entire staff at Gateway Motorsports Park who made Open Wheel Icons a success, and all of us shine.
Simply put, you each were an integral ingredient to our success. This endeavor could not have been possible without the generous contributions of Hagerty Vintage Motorsports Insurance, Speedway Motors, Bubba Burgers, Bell Helmets and Omologato Watches. We thank each and all! The event was a resounding accomplishment, and we look forward to 2019,
with great things in the works!
Till next time, we wish everyone the best.
