IRL IndyCar Series cars took to The Milwaukee Mile for the first time on Wednesday with double Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves and Andretti Green Racing driver Bryan Herta taking part in an IRL-sanctioned test.

The IndyCar Series will compete at "The Mile" for the first time on July 25th, 2004.

"The test went really well at Milwaukee," Herta said. "I've always enjoyed racing there because it is a very good track. The Archipelago/Motorola crew gave me a good car, and it was comfortable right from the start. It is hard to say what the racing will be like next year because we were the only ones running today. Also, it was very cold, so our lap times really aren't indicative of what the cars will be running here next year."

The high temperature on Wednesday in Milwaukee was 50 degrees, 17 degrees below normal.
