Please don't let this track go. My entire 45 years have been spent living very close to the Milwaukee Mile. It is a great location and the drivers love this track. For all these years we have grown up selling lemonade and just sitting outside talking to all of the spectators that come for races here, it has been a joy and a source of pride. We enjoy every minute of it!

We can't let a fun form of recreation like this leave town. Not to mention the financial ramfications.

Only a fool would let the Milwaukee Mile go. I've seen the track in it hayday and I watched the State screw it UP! This is to all you half witts from the State. Don't Screw this up with Michael Andretti.Fix what you messed up with NASCAR and bring them back....I do vote on a regular bases and I will vote for someone who is in favor of keeping racing in Milwaukee. To Michael Andretti and Family THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! SEE YOU AT THE RACES!

I live in the Lake Geneva area and watched that track closed. (ROSS KENSETH raced there on the weekends in his beginning career)
I work in the Milwaukee(in the automotive industry), and I am watching this track being pushed asside.
I am an AVID race fan on both the Open wheel and Stock car as well as Moto.
There are way too many smaller tracks being closed, that are supported by local people, all in the name of the almighty dollar.
To quote Pete Pistone we all need to be "staning up" about this and get something done. Not just for the INDY series, but NASCAR as well.

Been supporting the track since the '60's. State Fair week used to feature two, three or even four stock car races. Almost lived there in August. NASCAR should support its roots. They take the Nationwide to Elkhart Lake for a road course race; what's the matter with the mile?

I have been going to the mile for many many years. From the time when the REAL ASA with stars like Bobby Dotter, Butch Miller, and Mike Eddy made its way through there, to the start of the nascar era at the mile. I love and appreciate the mile and its heritage. I grew up 3 blocks away from the track in the 80s and my father and I rarely missed a race. I sincerely hope that we can continue to enjoy our memories and more memories to come at The Mile. And not to mention I WANT TO SEE NASCAR BACK AT THE MILWAUKEE MILE!!!!!

Save the Milwaukee Mile!! I have so many memories watching the Indy races when A. J. Foyt was burning up the track. We loved going to the Nationwide races. BRING NASCAR BACK. We will be in the stands for the ASA/Big 8 racing on June 12, 2012. Our favorite local racer will be participating. His first time at the Mile. What a thrill it will be to watch him at the Mile. He will be part of this History Making track. Find people who truly care about the Mile to keep it going. DON'T LET THE MILE GO BY THE WAYSIDE LIKE MY FAVORITE BALL PARK OF ALL TIME, COUNTY STADIUM. THAT BROKE MY HEART as I went to so many Braves games since 1953 when it opened.

My father used to work on the Fire & Rescue Squad at the Milwaukee Mile 50's, 60's, 70's in the North Turn and saved many lives there! I grew up at the Mile and I am 47 now. I have many fond memories of my family sitting in the infield across from my father......and have wonderful memories and funny stories of time spent with AJ (Foyt), Al & Bobby (Unser) and Mario (Andretti)back in the USAC days! This is one heck of a track to drive and has such great fans. Please help bring racing back to the Mile so that I can share the experience with my children and grandchildren!!

Some of the best memories with my father came at the Milwaukee Mile. We were there every year for the Rex Mays Classic which always came the week after the Indy 500. We loved the "BIG" track in Milwaukee.
We cannot afford to lose this piece of Wisconsin history.
Wisconsin and Milwaukee both need the Mile !!!

I grew up with this track. My father took me to countless races here. This was always the place to be the weekend after Indy when I was growing up. Indy, ASA, USAC, NASCAR cars and trucks... This track has hosted them all and a variety of local races. Attended all the Alan Kulwicki fundraisers there and had the pleasure of meeting his father and holding Alans Championship ring! So much history - let's keep it going!

I've made many good memories going to Nationwide and Truck races at the Mile. I'd like to create many more good memories! Save the Mile!

glad to see i'm not the only one who wants to see the Mile remain what it is and bring racing back to Milwaukee!!

I was excited when I moved to Milwaukee and found out it has a great piece of living racing history, and is only blocks away. It is exciting to say the least and also harkens back through the different eras of racing.

I started going to the Milwaukee Mile when it was the State Fair Track. I used to go on Thursday evening to watch the stock cars on a small track in front of the grandstans. And I beleive it was in the late 40s when stock cars ran and Kaiser Fraseer was the choice. But a local friend of ours entered a new Caddy. And his friend drove it in front all day with an unlit cigar in his mouth!!! He won the race BUT the next Day that stated the a local driver from Racine won it!!!
They did not want a driver who drove racing cars and midgets in the 20s to get the win!!! The last time I went I forgot to wear ear plugs and I was deaf for awhile. I still love racing and my favorite stock card drive is Matt Kenseth and second favorite is That bad boy Kryle Busch.

My father-in-law worked there for 30 years. We can't let this die because no one really tried to run it correctly.

Save the Mile! A great track for a great city. Will be there in June for the IRL race - with Pit Passes to boot.
