For $60, You Can Now Lap the Speedway in an IndyCar

William Gurstelle

Hundreds of thousands of people jam into the Indianapolis Motor Speedway each May to watch the annual 500-mile race. The event is an assault on the senses: the whine of the alcohol-fueled turbocharged Chevy and Honda engines mixes with the roar of the spectators packing the stands, the smell of burnt rubber and fuel exhaust, and blur of cars averaging speeds approaching 240 miles an hour.

Door County, Wis., was never high on my list of vacation spots. The drive seemed too long, and I imagined I would find the place too touristy. Turns out, I was wrong on both counts. First of all, Wisconsin 29 was upgraded to a four-lane expressway a few years ago, cutting an hour or more off the drive time and making the journey from St. Paul to Green Bay far easier and safer. You can leave the Twin Cities at 7 a.m. and be in Door County in time for lunch.
