WEST ALLIS -- It was race day at the Milwaukee Mile in West Allis on Saturday, June 16th. Pit crews prepped, drivers went over every inch of their cars, and fans filled the stands.

IndyFest was more than 225 laps of adrenaline, ziplines, bumper cars and a ferris wheel. There were even a few concerts as part of the experience.

Mike Gingrass hadn't been to the Milwaukee Mile since the mid-1960s. Saturday, he was one of three generations to take in the sights and sounds.

"When they get going and they're 120 miles-an-hour racing around a one-mile track, that to me will get that feeling back," Gingrass said.
