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!

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

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)?

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.

Bring this historic icon back in the fold! Oldest existing race track shouldn’t sit dormant as a practice track

This legendary venue has stood the test of time, and should be preserved for its historical value and under the right circumstances with the proper management could become a vital asset to the racing world yet again.

The Milwaukee Mile is one of the oldest race tracks in the world. This heritage has to be perserved. Bring back IndyCars to Milwaukee the week after Indy 500.

Save the Mile. Look at the history of this track not to mention the names of all the drivers. I liked it when it was the weekend after Indy. I thought it was a great challenge for the drivers to go from racing at Indy straight to Milwaukee. Some commented on weekend races. Sure would be nice to have some activity at the track. We need to save this track. Hales Corners is gone...Do Not let the Milwaukee Mile Die Also!!!

Hate to lose ovals and having them replaced by road courses--losing too many old tracks...Milwaukee should win over that too short track @ Iowa!

The Mile must be saved. It is the longest running track in the world. And I.m work with State Fair to make sure it Never Dies.
June 14, 2017 | Burlington
The Milwaukee Mile is a very important part of Wisconsin History. This mile track could be a money maker with financial support from the state to kick start and some top notch promoters to bring weekend racing to Milwaukee. Seems the problem is just one race now and then does not build a big enough draw. If scheduled races were held each or at least every other weekend by Wisconsin asphalt racers and adjoining states . This could be a big draw making money for Milwaukee businesses and for sure a gold mine for the sport. Any reason we cant get together some promoters and a grant or loan from the state to kick this track back into gear not only saving it but giving us fans what we want ? Local tracks could have some participation and profit shares for championship races etc. Could they not ?

June 06, 2017 | Muskego
I Love this track and everything about it and its history. I saw my favorite driver Paul Menard win his first race in 2006. if they don't want to host Nascar or Indy they should have the super late models from slinger race there once break up the scenery and have at least an arca midwest stop still. We cant lose this track
June 01, 2017 | New Jersey
LOVED this track when it hosted IndyCar races. It is so important that we bring the Indy race back there. Rich history that dates back before IMS was built. I would in the future like to just have the opportunity to attend the race.

Sad that with all the multi-millionaires in racing combined can't put together a corporate group to not only save but operate this historic shrine. My dad used to take me to the Rex Mays and Tony Bettenhausen races every year! Great, great memories in that grandstand.

I spent my youth attending Indy car races at Milwaukee Fair Park with my dad and brother. The "Mile" is an important part of Milwaukee history and should be preserved for future generations.
May 03, 2017 | United Kingdom
The last ever oval Champ Car race was held at the Mile. It is also one of the most exiting races on the calendar. This track should be saved by someone. Given how much IndyCar has gained from this circuit, why is IndyCar not trying to save its history.
April 30, 2017 | Milwaukee
Oldest track in the World!! Please keep the Milwaukee Mile for future generations. We have many great memories.

A tradition dating back in my family to when the track was dirt..look at the Wisconsin racing hero's that have developed here. Racing is not dead in Wisconsin. Time to diversify sports in Milwaukee beyound bucks and brewers

Go beyond just the $$ and find ways to continue tradition

Save the mile .auto racing is a Wisconsin heritage. Millions invested 17 years ago to make it nice now it just sits empty. Get a good promoter and make it great again .
April 06, 2017 | Arizona
My family has been attending the IndyCar races at the Mile for years. Even after my move to Arizona I would return for this event. Please do not let the Mile suffer the same fate as the breweries. Save this part of Milwaukee's history.
April 03, 2017 | Racine, WI.
It amazes me, that this state continues to push money for losing franchises like the bucks and brewers, but will let this die.. I would give up the bucks and brewers anyday for this track.

Instead making it difficult for Indycar or Nascar to run a race here, work with promoters to get things back on track! Proper promotion would bring crowds again. It would be a shame to lose such a historic track.

Let's get this done! We are so fortunate to have this historic racing facility here. For decades it showcased the top drivers from usac, nascar, indycar, and asa. The Mile attracted thousands of race fans each summer and those of us who attended races remember the spectacle of these events. Today, when I attend a Monster cup race, I wonder what if...what if the Mile had been properly managed, marketed, and allowed to grow and keep up with other motorsport facilities? How much money could the track have brought into our local economy in a single weekend? Bring back racing to The Mile and this time let's get it right! This old historic track could be great again!
March 25, 2017 | Milwaukee
Even though I'm new to Milwaukee I've travel across the USA extensively, so having a facility like this in your own backyard is rare. If it goes or if it's not used you will never get it back. A P3 or Public Private Partnership is the only way to go in order to save the Mile. Support Please

With the resurgence of Indy racing and a Healthy NASCAR scene, there's no doubt regularly scheduled events at the mile would have a positive impact on the community.
