With great racing, grand activities on and off the track, and affordable prices, Michigan International Speedway (MIS) is the ideal location for your late summer getaway.
Nestled in the lush Irish Hills region of southeastern Michigan, Michigan International Speedway (MIS) is part national park, part thrill ride. Hosting popular NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races in June and August, the facility-- with more than 40 years of history-- focuses on being a destination for all ages and is a favorite among fans and drivers alike. (Next event takes place on August 13, 2010).
Boasting ten campgrounds with nearly 9,000 sites, Michigan International Speedway is the largest registered campground in the state. The racetrack is the perfect getaway for campers of all ages.
Perfectly situated in the heart of Michigan’s beautiful Irish Hills, MIS is only 67 miles southwest of Detroit, but a world away from the big city. The track is surrounded by the very best Michigan has to offer: lush trees, beautiful lakes and cottages, rolling hills and amazing golf courses.
On the inside, MIS is all about high-speed action. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers reach speeds approaching 190 mph on the 2-mile oval track. The track, built in 1968, also hosts NASCAR’s Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series races.
But on the outside, it’s about the memories race fans make while here — vacations, camping and spending time with friends and family. Some race fans even make new friends that last a lifetime.
