Not only is The Mile historic, it also makes for a unique exciting type of racing -- working through lapped traffic. When it's gone there's no getting it back.

Used to go to races here as a kid, would be nice to see some racing here again someday.

I moved back to the area and really wish that an investment could be made in the Milwaukee Mile again! I'd commit to be at almost every race. I moved back to Wisconsin after living in California for 31 years. I went to races at the Milwaukee Mile as a kid.

The Milwaukee Mile has been around twice as long as Lambeau Field and has had so many great legends compete on it! It is a shame that the people of Milwaukee and Wisconsin don't realize what an absolute historical gem we have right in our own backyard!

The Milwaukee Mile is one of the wonders of the world. There is way too much racing history to close this racetrack down. I can recall that the late Andy Granatelli stated that this was the best oval raced on after the Indy 500. Racers loved it and kindly reconsider shutting it down. Thank you.

Save the Mile: This facility has much history and way to much potential for a bright future just to let it go to waste. Would be a shame not to at least try and lure a promoter that will bring back some form of top notch racing.

The Milwaukee Mile just as much apart of American Motorsports History as Indianapolis is. This historical track must be preserved and brought back to use by a Championship Racing Series, hopefully the ones that made it famous, IndyCar and NASCAR.
I plead that you see the importantance and significance of this place.

KEEP THE MILE : Racing is a part of the American Heritage and The Milwaukee Mile has hosted all the Greats from the Unsers, the Andrettis, Mears, Foyt, etc.. all the Royalty!
This is yet another piece of Ethnicity & Heritage being lost to the Modern Age.
Do Not Allow the Mile to sit idle.. bring back the Big Races & Make it affordable for families, and you will see 'Build It and They Will Come' to see the race :)

We absolutely cannot let this legendary track go unused. It's a shame it sits vacant for most of the year. It's about time to bring back some big events and people of the surrounding area need to come out to support this jewel sitting in the middle of our community!

The Milwaukee Mile is a legend, it can't be lost. we lost too much raceways 'cause they (the owners) didn't cared of these legendary circuits an example of this is Emerson Fittipaldi Speedway. #SaveTheMile

Racetracks are testaments to the creative and competitive spirits of the human race. Venues as storied as Milwaukee Mile must be preserved so future generations may enjoy them too.

Ive always liked the mile it was a difficult track to run and it was challenging to run and it was fun too! They just put in new stands as well so why not use them.

I have so many memories of going to the track to see indy racing and stock car racing during the state fair.

Milwaukee cannot afford to lose a gem like the famous Milwaukee Mile. The track got tons of media coverage when the CART race was held a week after the Indy 500 and was a very successful race weekend. INDYCAR, please return the schedule to the early 1990s with the Mile in early June and Road America in August or September! I was so proud to live in a city with two of the best racetracks in the world within an hour of my house. Please save this important historical hallowed ground!

Oldest racetrack in the USA. Legends raced here. Most historic racetrack in the USA, second only to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The state would be stupid to get rid of it! PROMOTE IT!!!! REPAIR IT!!!!

The celebration of progress brings hope for the future, however we MUST be cautious to ensure that our future has a strong foundation or it will simply be false dreams that will surely crumble beneath our feet. As we look to create a strong future, we must never sacrifice our heritage.
The “Milwaukee Mike” is proof to the strength and character of the motor racing industry. We need to dedicate our efforts to preserving who we are and where we came from because a future that is not built on the strength of our past is no future at all.

Attended so many races at the infamous Milwaukee Mile. What a wonderful place and so many great memories. Many families have memories there and want to continue their traditions with their children. That track has been updated and needs to be preserved, not torn down like so much of the history in our country.

We from Rio de Janeiro suffered TOO MUCH with the sad demolition of our "Autódromo Nelson Piquet", also called "Autódromo Internacional de Jacarépaguá".
All the community miss it and the racers don't have where to race anymore. Don't repeat this with the Milwaukee Mile! We have to preserve and estimulate our history! Be responsible!
God bless you and I really hope that, soon I visit USA, the Milwaukee Mile be safe!

I remember going the 2011 Milwaukee 225 for my first ever Indycar race (as I was completely new to the sport) and rooting for Oriol Servia to win. Ever since, it immediately sparked my in the Indycar Series. That race will always be one of the best days of my life! PLEASE SAVE THE MILE!!

Please bring back the Milwaukee Mile. I remember going to the IndyCar races the week after the Indianapolis 500. It was so much fun. I remember the stands being so full that no one could find a place to sit. It’s so sad to see such a historic race track being dismantled and not being used. I’m 38 years old and have been following IndyCar racing since I was 8. Drivers loved racing here because of the history and the challenges.
January 13, 2018
This track is an American gem. I made the last IndyCar race held there and was struck,by being there, of its historic relevance as well as its unique setting at the fairgrounds in West Allis. This track needs to be saved and needs to be back on the IndyCar schedule.
January 13, 2018 | Waukesha wi
Please keep the legend around. Ive gone to this track for 25 plus years growing up and would love to continue the tradition with my family. I looked forward to timetrials on Saturday with my dad and then race day as a whole family. Please bring back the tradition

December 04, 2017 | Lakewood CA
This track needs to stick around it’s been around and come to far to just be forgotten. I think the best thing by far would be to have it the week after the Indy 500 like back then. The racing wasn’t the best the past few times the series went there but the new universal aero kit should make for better racing. Bring back the mile!

I've never seen a race there in person, only on TV, but that's one place I've always wanted to visit since the first broadcast I saw. It's a shame it's got to this point. Too many awesome, historic tracks are going by the wayside. We can't let this happen at Milwaukee!
October 29, 2017 | Indianapolis
How can the city of Milwaukee allow the historic track to fade away? Where is your people’s since of the importance of this track to your city identity and to the world of racing. Northwestern must step up and save this
October 26, 2017 | Anniston, Al.
I grew up in Milwaukee, and have been back to the Mile even though I moved away. This is a prime example of state owned property being tied up in red tape. Please put it up for sale so the private sector can run it properly. If this was a stick and ball sport, the government would run it in the red indefinitely. Why is Motorsports not held to the same standard? (or sub-standard)?
October 12, 2017 | Appleton WI
All the history and memories. Many options available to get many different races and clubs racing again. Lets get together and make it happen. Be a shame and a joke to waste money ripping it down.
