Michael Andretti, president and CEO of Andretti Sports Marketing, announced Saturday the Milwaukee IndyFest will return to the Milwaukee Mile in 2013. Andretti also announced that tickets for the 2013 race will go on sale Sunday. Milwaukee IndyFest is scheduled for Father's Day weekend, Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15, 2013. Andretti made the announcement prior to giving the command to start engines for Saturday's inaugural IZOD IndyCar Series Milwaukee IndyFest race.
Reserved ticket holders for today's IndyFest race may renew their seats before July 16. They can do so at the official event website at: http://www.MilwaukeeIndyFest.com
. Tickets will also be available Monday at the Wisconsin State Fair box office, and by phone at 414-266-7100. (Box office hours: 9 am - 6 pm Monday through Friday.) General admission tickets are also available.
Andretti Sports Marketing assumed promotion of the event in February, when the Milwaukee Mile was in danger of being removed from the IZOD IndyCar schedule.
