    I don't get involved in gossip and/or rumors or wish ill on any small business owner, I think you forget that I work with small business owners for a living and know how hard they work to try to provide for their families. It's just not classy and I don't have a horse in the race so it's not my business, even if I did know something is not something I'd speak about because it's not my business to share. There's a reason my business owner friends come to me and ask me questions without hesitation.

    Business owners don't have the luxury that you do of taking half the year off this year and still getting paid for it. Are some bad? Yes.. Are some good? Yes.. I don't know how anyone could be "happy" for any of the the small business owners that are really struggling this year and don't know anything in detail about the topic of this post.

    I felt bad for the bartender when picking up carry-out yesterday and threw her $20 for a glass of water while I waited. Same reason I tipped the girl who cut my hair well today when I saw her appointment's were wide open today/Friday. Everyone's struggling to put food on the table, not just the business owners. How do I know? Oh wait, I physically worked on the government relief programs/PPP processing.

    Go drink some more white claws and Tito's, stay off the internet and don't drag me into this.

    I meant no ill will for Milan Dragway or its owners.

    I know a lot of folks here use this business and it
    is local to my community (I live here).

    I simply post it because it is news that could possibly
    affect some folks and thought they would like to know.

    I do understand and appreciate what you are saying Nick.

    I'm not saying anyone here isn't entitled to their thoughts/opinions etc. so sorry if it came off that way. It's certainly a hot topic, just hate to see someone say "good riddance" etc. when we're talking about people's livelihoods in general (not Milan specific).. I'm sure there's lots we/business owners would all do differently if we could.

    I will take that out of my retirement and buy it for that amount.

    Nick, I hear what you are saying. I think a lot of the questions are coming out of concern about the possibility of losing a racetrack more than they are about the owner's fate.

    And wikdsvt, I will go in with you 50/50!

    Very interesting history of Michigan's drag strips including Milan.
