IndyCar Drivers Ride With Milwaukee Police
MILWAUKEE, Wis. – The Milwaukee Police Department bicycle officers had the chance for a different kind of ride-along on today in downtown Milwaukee.
IZOD IndyCar Series drivers Ryan Hunter-Reay, Josef Newgarden and Bryan Clauson, all three in the starting field for Sunday’s 96th annual Indianapolis 500, were promoting the June 15-16 IndyFest 225 at the Milwaukee Mile.
After apress conference discussing the upcoming “500” and Milwaukee race the three, along with six MPD bicycle officers from the Neighborhood Task Force, Districts 1 and 2, took a patrol ride starting at the Police Administration Building in downtown Milwaukee.
They rode on bicycle through downtown, stopping at the Chase Bank Plaza, Red Arrow Park, through the Third Ward and into the residential area of District 2 on the near South Side.
“This is a neat chance to ride with the police, I’m also looking forward to returning to Milwaukee in a few weeks” commented Hunter-Reay, who won at the track in 2004.
