I'm born, raised and still reside near The Mile. I actually love the noise and the hustle and bustle it brings to the neighborhood. I grew up with it, so it brings back lots of good memories as a kid growing up in West Allis! I also love the history it holds. I would absolutely hate to see The Mile go. Save The Mile and bring back races!!

The Mile has to be my favorite oval in the world outside of my home track in Indianapolis. Not a cookie cutter, and it has tradition! Great races every time, and most importantly a Milwaukee icon. I wouldn't care about Milwaukee at all if not for the Mile! Please keep her!

I had a lot of great times at the Milwaukee Mile and would hate to see it closed. Every effort needs to be made to ensure that major league racing continues at this historic track.

I'm a NASCAR guy and would really like to see stock cars back on the Mile, but at this point would gladly attend an IndyCar race if that helps the cause. Save the Mile!

It would be a tragedy of epic proportions to lose this venue to "modernization." Lawmakers: Think of history rather than the bottom line, for a change. Leave the Mile alone!

Someone needs to actually promote the Indycar race if they come back! You never hear or see anything about that race but yet you cant go 5 minutes on tv without hearing the word Nascar. I have been to atleast 35 Indycar races at the mile and think the race is almost always one of the best on the schedule. They really need Indycar at this track, its a great track and should be used!

I've been to several IndyCar races at the Mile and it is not only a great event for the fans but also one of the drivers' favorite tracks. The racing has always been highly entertaining and with the right promoter and a title sponsor, the Milwaukee IndyCar race can again be one of the most successful races in the series. It would be a terrible shame if the county and state do not continue to invest in the Mile and support one of the oldest races in American motor sports history.

Keep Milwaukee Mile going. We can get this track back to full capcity through promoting it. It wont happen over night but within 3 yrs we could have this track back in the circuit. We can have Nascar and Indy in here and give Milwaukee County and West Allis a good tourist income by having this track an active track. Its all boils down to word of mouth and promoting it outside of Wisconsin as well. Promote the track at every other race and that will get people outside of Milwaukee on board as well. This would be one of the best things that the politians could keep. Its historical, money gold mine and something that doesnt required a lot of changes and up keep to keep it going. There is a lot that can go into this to continue to generate a steady flow of income year after year. But it depends on promoting it. Get out of Wisconsin and promote the Milwaukee Mile at the other races. If people dont know its there they wont come. Have something that stands out at each race that will stay with the fans that came so it will also remain in the minds of people who do attend.

I've been to the last 2 Indycar races, and if they decide to come back I'll be one of the biggest promoters!

We attended our very first Indycar race at the Mile last year and hope it is not the first AND the last! We loved watching the race and just wished there was a little more excitement around the event and better attendance. I don't think the people of Milwaukee know what a gem they have there. Let's help them realize it!

The loyal racing fan base of southeastern WI deserves an active racing facility like this. Someone with money who KNOWS something about the racing business needs to be found to run the Mile. Then the Fair Park board needs to step back and give them a chance to make it work.

This track is part of racing history. It should be preserved like a museum not closed like a prison!

We have been to many great races at the milwaukee mile over the years. It is important to the history of Wisconsin and a great way to promote our fine state. Two winston cup champions, Alan Kulwicki and Matt Kenseth have started their racing in Wisconsin. It would be a tragedy to close the Milwaukee mile race track.

Had the best times at Milwaukee Mile watching Indycar, NasCar,and Champ series racing. We really need to get all these races back to Milwaukee.

Milwaukee! What else can be said about this dead-ass town? If Newton, Iowa can put on a race you'd think this town could. No offense, IA. See you this summer.

how is it that after million dollars plus in new grandstands and safer barriers we allow the racetrack to die?? i do not think we need a rocket scientist to promote races at this track. we need a passionate person who really cares about premiere racing at the countries oldest racetrack. why not let a group of fans take over the track and see what happens. we certainly couldn't do any worse.

Save The Mile! Love making the trip for the race. The history of the track needs to be kept alive.

With Indy Car announcing 1/13/12 they want to come back to the Mile in 2012 if the Fair Board doesn't work hard to help pull this off then it is time for a new Fair Board. With 100+ years of racing at the Mile, it would be a crime to let this opportunity slip way.
