Located in the Irish Hills, Michigan International Speedway is a 2-mile "d-shaped" oval in Brooklyn, Michigan. Opened in 1968, MIS hosted its first NASCAR race in 1969, and has a seating capacity of over 100,000 after expansion in 2000.
Situated behind the main grandstand, the Fan Plaza is 26-acres of off-track racing fun for families. The area features souvenir haulers for your favorite drivers, as well as the SPEED Stage, where SPEED Channel broadcasts originate on race weekends. There are also vendor displays, food and beverage concessions, and the Kids Zone, where kids will find bounce houses, rock walls, and obstacle courses.
There are two NASCAR weekends on the 2013 schedule at MIS: June 14th through 16th, featuring the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series along with the ARCA Racing Series; and August 16th through 18th, featuring the Sprint Cup and Camping World Truck Series. 2013 tickets are not yet available for purchase, but while you’re waiting, visit www.mispeedway.com for more information.
