Spartan Race is making its long awaited Michigan debut at the Iconic Michigan International Speedway. Opened in 1968, this venue hosts several NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races, including the FireKeepers Casino 400 and the Pure Michigan 400. The track and its surrounding property boasts 1,400 acres of terrain. As one of the flatter courses on the Spartan circuit, expect a quick, obstacle-heavy course, placing an even bigger burden on obstacle failures and the time spent destroying burpees. After all, it's only fitting that this "Speedway" provide a fast and furious race. For more information on the race taking place at Michigan International Speedway, check out the Spartan Race Website
