Another big race weekend is coming up at Michigan International Speedway, and it’s one that you are not going to want to miss! I’ve been attending race weekends for years at MIS, both with friends and then family, and it’s a highlight of my year.

Whether you’re a first timer, a veteran Michigan International Speedway attendee like me or someone who hasn’t been to the Speedway in a while, you owe it to yourself to get your friends and family together and get to MIS for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series practice and qualifying on Friday, August 9th, the Corrigan Oil 200 on Saturday, August 10th and then the grand finale of the 2019 Michigan International Speedway racing season, the Consumers Energy 400 on Sunday, August 11th!

There are so many things to enjoy at and around the track. Everything from the track itself and the great racing to the pits and the garage area to the terrific Fan Plaza and the campgrounds. This is just a small part of what people have come to expect when they visit Michigan International Speedway. But along with your all-time favorites at the track, there’s so many new things to be enjoyed, too!

Like the Pit Road Acceleration Club, which is moving to the infield right behind pit road in Turn 1. It’s where you can hang out to watch the race and enjoy breakfast, catered lunch and a post-race snack in the lounge. You’ll be able to see special guests and even attend the drivers and crew chiefs meeting. Bring the kids for the Kids Pit and Driver Introduction Pass, which is free to any guest who purchases a 12 and under ticket. The kids get to experience pit road on Sunday morning, sign the start/finish line (how cool is that?) and see the cars and teams up close on race day while also gaining access to pre-race ceremonies and driver introductions.

I can't even list all of the things there are to do and enjoy during your MIS experience, but a few of my favorites are the All-You-Can-Eat Package, the Free Food Ticket Package, and MIS Collectable Coolers. Oh yeah, don’t forget to check out that beautiful scoreboard (like you could miss it!); it’s 150 feet high, with screens on all four sides and video screens at the bottom to show replays and lots of action from around the Speedway.

Don’t let all of this fast-moving excitement pass you by. Get more great info and your tickets now at!
