History

The Michigan International Speedway is a two-mile D-shaped oval racetrack in Brooklyn, Michigan. The 71,000-seat speedway opened in 1968. The Michigan International Speedway is typically the fastest track in NASCAR and is home to the FireKeepers Casino 400 and Pure Michigan 400.

Since opening, the Michigan International Speedway has undergone several renovations. The largest of which took place between 2004 and 2005, and added the AAA Motorsports Fan Plaza, a three-story viewing tower, a new state-of-the-art press box, and a new race operations facility.

In addition to hosting motorsports, the Michigan International Speedway is the home of the Michigan High School Athletic Association cross country finals and the Make-A-Wish Bicycle Tour. The track also hosts several concerts as part of the speedway’s race weekends and was the site of the Faster Horses country music festival in 2013.
