Six weeks after INDYCAR announced their 2012 IZOD IndyCar Series schedule with a TBA, the Milwaukee Mile will fill that void becoming the 5th oval and 16th event.
Michael Andretti, under the Andretti Sports Marketing Wisconsin banner, announced the event scheduled for June 15 & 16.
"It's a historic track in a great city, and it's a place that has always been a favorite for my family," said Andretti. "But, more importantly, it's an ideal track for Indy cars and always produces exciting racing for the fans."
Branded as the Milwaukee IndyFest, five-time champion Michael Andretti will promote the event with Kevin Healy being named Managing Director.
"Our goal is to make this more than a race, by creating a festival environment with some unique fan interactions and experiences, a great concert and a celebration of the history of the Milwaukee Mile," Healy said. "We will announce more events in the coming weeks."
Tickets will go on sale March 1.
