Michigan International Speedway
Located between Detroit and Chicago, Michigan International Speedway (MIS) is a great place to watch NASCAR. It sits on more than 1,400 acres in the picturesque Irish Hills of southeastern Michigan.
The home track for most of the manufacturers, the Michigan International Speedway is a 2-mile tri-oval, though more oval than triangle. Its wide corners often feature three distinct grooves, allowing for some exciting racing.
Racing at Michigan International Speedway has marked the passing of summer for NASCAR drivers for quite a long time. You can witness "Wide and Fast" making great racing or a good race to nap through.
Michigan Internal Speedway demands a lot on engines, so attrition is always a factor at the track. Races at the Speedway often come down to fuel mileage battles as the long green flag runs make pit strategy critical to finding victory lane. But drivers still love it.
The wide track also keeps the number of cautions down which sometimes allows the leaders to get away from the pack. The history of Michigan International Seedway dates back to 1968, when it opened with a 250-mile race for Indy cars won by Ronnie Bucknum.
With 18-degree banking in its wide and fast turns, the speedway was designed by Charles Moneypenny. Lawrence LoPatin who was a land developer from the Detroit area was the driving force behind construction of the track.
In June 1969, Michigan International Speedway"s inaugural NASCAR event provided an indication of what future ticket buyers saw at the track over the coming years. The year 1973 saw motorsports mogul Roger Penske purchasing Michigan International Speedway for about $2 million.
The track was made bigger and better and its capacity grew from around 100,000 to over 125,000 during 25 years. After undergoing several phases of improvements in garage and infield areas, Michigan International Speedway became one of the United States top facilities for both stock-car and Indy-car racing.
In July 1999, Roger Penske merged his motorsports venture with International Speedway Corporation. 11,000 seats were added in 2000, while the largest renovation project in Michigan International Speedway"s history was completed before the 2005 racing season.
Michigan International Speedway currently plays host to two NASCAR races called the 3M Performance 400 Presented by Bondo in the Sprint Cup Series, and the Carfax 250 in the Nationwide Series.
The wide surface allows drivers to choose the most effective line for them to compete for NASCAR glory, making the Michigan International Speedway a favorite track among drivers.
Cale Yarborough was the one who made first victory in Michigan International Speedway"s inaugural NASCAR event. He later won seven more races on the track. With nine career Michigan victories, David Pearson is the all-time leader.
Michigan International Speedway will always have a special place in Dale Jarrett"s heart for scoring his first career Cup series victory. With the latest round of improvements done, Michigan International Speedway can now accommodate up to 137,000 people. Those wanting to enjoy camping at the track have acres and acres available to them in areas near the track"s property.
Both the 3M Performance 400 Presented by Bondo in the Sprint Cup Series, and the Carfax 250 in the Nationwide Series are likely to involve a fair number of cars crashing into each other.
Therefore, the track has been selected by the Michigan Department of Transportation as a neutral testing facility for car-to-car and car-to-road technology.
This technology is expected to prevent cars from crashing. In person, the sightlines are excellent her. As long as you"re not in a hurry to get home, it"s well worth the trip.
