June NASCAR Races

Twice a year, over 70,000 auto racing fans descend upon the Irish Hills area, just down the road from Jackson, for a couple of unforgettable NASCAR Cup Series experiences. Michigan has been a hotspot for racing almost as long as the automobile has been in production, and NASCAR is no exception. Michigan International Speedway is widely regarded as the fastest in the country and you’ll find the true meaning of speed during your visit.

FireKeepers Casino 400

NASCAR Cup season kicks off in the mitten state with the FireKeepers Casino 400. The racing is so fast, that the 1999 edition set an all-time record for the fastest average speed in a 400-mile race: 173.887 mph. For more information, visit the speedway’s event page.

About the Track

Michigan International Speedway is a two-mile giant that lives on over 1,400 acres in the Irish Hills. 18-degree banks and 73-foot-wide turns highlight this southern Michigan jewel. What originally seated 12,000 people can now seat over 80,000 in the grandstands alone. With almost 50 years of racing history to its name, this is one speedway that shows no signs of slowing down.
