Milwaukee SCCA at the Milwaukee Mile

For those in WI or Chicago, Milwaukee SCCA puts on a pretty good event at the Milwaukee Mile. They usually run Thurs evenings which is kind of cool. Leave work and blow off some steam! Its a 1.9 mile course that's pretty fast and tricky!

Only downers are it eats tires (turn on the oval) and lots of walls.
