              That's pretty cool. There was a guy who was a friend of my dad's who ran a Conoco station downtown that had a shelf full of old Milwaukee programs from that era. I imagine they all got tossed when he shuttered the place. I loved visiting his place and looking at all the pics in the programs.

                Looks like we need to bump up the res on the images - or maybe ensure in the future that each page gets it's own image.

                  Interesting seeing all of the auto dealer ads. Some of them are still around. Concours was sold maybe 5 years ago and now operates under a different name. Ewald's no longer has a location on Highway 100 south of North Avenue, but they have a bunch of dealerships in the area. I bought my current car from them. My mom and dad had their wedding reception at Ray Bussler. It was torn down maybe 10 years ago. This is all a bit off topic, but it makes me think about the track and the city. The 1967 spring race was run 9 years and months before I was born, but even when I was a kid - the Mile was a vibrant facility.

                    Oh, for an archive of old race programs! I know collectors pay big bucks for this sort of thing, but for those of us of little coin, it is pure joy to be able to view stuff like this.

                      Mario was an entry but according to the penciled in line-up he was a non-starter? Anyone know the story?

                        Mario crashed in practice.

                          According to the champcarstats.com, Aldo Andretti was entered in the race. He was supposed to drive the #67 Jim Robbins Vollstedt. I'm guessing the same car Lee Roy Yarbrough drove at Indy. It just says he did not qualify. Jim Malloy, in the #27 Jim Robbins entry also did not make the race as he was too slow.

                            For that early Milwaukee race, didn't they still have that Consi race?
