With great racing, grand activities on and off the track, gorgeous countryside and affordable prices and the states largest campground--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.

Perfectly situated in the heart of Michigans 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 NASCARs Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series races (August 17).

But on the outside, its about the memories race fans make while here vacations, camping and spending time with friends and family.

Boasting ten campgrounds with nearly 9,000 sites, Michigan International Speedway is the largest registered campground in the state. Welcoming RV, tents, pop-ups and motorcoaches, this southeastern Michigan campsite is the perfect getaway for avid campers of all ages. So each year, thousands of campers arrive at MIS during NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events, spending the weekend camping out with their family and friends.
