Wisconsin Auto Racing


Wisconsin has a long history of auto racing. The first self-propelled highway vehicle in the United States was the Spark, a steam-powered buggy built in Racine in 1871 by John Carhart, honored at the 1908 Paris International Automobile Exposition as the "Father of Automobiles.". The first vehicle race was held in Wisconsin in 1878 and ran from Green Bay to Madison through Janesville. The winner won $5,000 from the Wisconsin legislature.

Wisconsin Time



Washington, DC is to lying what Wisconsin is to cheese. Dennis Miller
If you're looking for can-do, earthy-crunchy attitude then you've got to go to Wisconsin. Dar Williams
Wisconsin's a special place. Brett Favre
I love being from Wisconsin. Tanya Fischer
But the Wisconsin tradition meant more than a simple belief in the people. It also meant a faith in the application of intelligence and reason to the problems of society. It meant a deep conviction that the role of government was not to stumble along like a drunkard in the dark, but to light its way by the best torches of knowledge and understanding it could find. Adlai Stevenson
Other than motherhood, the eight years that I spent at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, I have incredibly fond memories of. It's a beautiful place, with four seasons up in Wisconsin. And really wonderful people. Laurel Clark
