I attended my first race there in the late 40s. I also saw the Packers play there. I saw Jim Hurtibise flame, Les Snow driving with his arm out the window and Frank Burany. Bill Shoulders, Jim Rathman, Marshall Teague and Norm Nelson. Jim Clark with his left front 10 inches off the ground. Tony Bettenhausen was my favorite. Quarter miler Fuzzy Fasbender. I saw Ed Elisian die in front of me on the south turn. The fire scorched my skin. Last year while visiting Milwaukee I walked the track, it was desolate. So glad they're running there again. I will try to make the race.

I have watched so many great races take place at this legendary track. I don't want to loose the place where so many of my heroes raced. I'd love for it to be around for my kids and grand children to enjoy.

Please bring the IRL and Nascar back to America's oldest oval!! My dad and I have been going to races at The Mile since I was 7 years old. This summer it broke my heart to see the track empty.
Lots of great racing happened here, and I hope to see many more years of it at The Mile.

IndyCar racing should return to The Milwaukee Mile--it would be a great benefit for the community, fans, as well as for the sport.

Bring back racing at the mile. Love to see ARCA come back too.

It would be great to see the facility continue to open up to hold events like the Govoners Cup and ASA Late Model races. Bring back the USAC Midgets and Sprint Cars. Six or eight events with the above type cars would be better than once a year having nascar there.

I love the Milwaukee mile,I wacth open wheel racing car, and stock cars on the milwaukee mile for over 15 years, and i in my 12 year of highshcool, but, I 'm real that the milwaukee mile is my fovrite short track on plant earth, And even got plan for my race seris, which I'm really, wirting rules for my racing seris to have a even plantforom of four class, from lowspeed-low-tech cars to, high-speed high-tech expensive cars. And my vision and guts say this milwaukee mile steal have life in it, and i well host an racing event in the milwaukee mile; know as the Milwaukee mile 3000mile race that start in daylight and end at night time. That my plan for the milwaukee mile, and save the milwaukee mile.

Have only been in Wisconsin for six years, but have gone to races here every year, prior to this mess. Prior to moving here, lived twenty minutes from Dover Speedway. Seems very sad and strange, that someone can't be found to run this historic track in a fashion that can turn a profit and draw national race series events. Maybe there's a lack of general public racing interest in this area? Seems like politics intervention in private ventures is not a good thing? Got my fingers crossed, and ready to buy tickets when events return.

The first race I attended at The Mile was the Tony Bettenhausen 200 in 1970. I have been an indy car fan ever since. Watching these cars through the 1970's inspired me to take the Skip Barber Racing School course and pursue a career with them. I attended all the IRL/IndyCar Series races at the mile and I am sad that we have no major league racing for the foreseeable future.

For 50 years Ive been going to this track.What ashame to be going down this road. This racetrack is not a blackhole for the communties that surround it. maybe the politicians should just move over and let some who truly knows how to turn a profit manage this track

Keep this track going. I have been going to the Mile so long and have nearly gotten divorced over the tradition.

Please don't let this icon of racing history go the route of so many other famous tracks. Once it's gone it's always gone!!!!!!!!!!

The Milwaukee Mile is a time honored tradition. Losing itg would not only be a magor loss for racing but also for the city of Milwaukee and the entire state of Wisconsin.

Last year, I attended my first race at the Mile: the IndyCar ABC Supply/A.J Foyt 225. I had the time of my life, and told my Mother "I cant wait till next year!" then I saw there will be no next year, and my heart simply sank. SAVE THE MILWAUKEE MILE!

It would be a shame to let such an historic place go by the wayside. I've enjoyed going to races there in the past, and I've been willing to travel interstate to be there.

How can closing the track even be an option? Some of the most memorable moments of my life have been at that track. Why dont the track officials meet with representatives from Nacar & Indy Car as well as the rest of the Racing Organizations and find out what it would to to make the operation of this track viable and gain some commitment from the motorsports agencies? The days of "Build it and they will come" are over....

Holy Cow this track has alot of history. If saving the Pabts brewery from demolition was important, I would imagine that keeping America's oldest raceway running should carry some clout. Get it out of the hands of the DNR.

My grandfather took my father and my father took me. Its upsetting that I may have to stop taking my son.

The loss of The Milwaukee Mile would be a devistating loss for the entire racing community. The history alone should be enough to keep it running at any cost. Do you think Indy or Daytona would shut down if profits were down? NO! They would get a board who KNOWS THE RACING BUISSNESS AND PROMOTE THE DAMN THING AND MAKE A PROFIT! Susan Crane and the Mile Board are just puppets of Gov. Doyle. The potetial is there just stop changing contracts when the deal is already made!
