Get Revved Up

This is Southeast Michigan — auto and boat racing is in our blood.

When you’re this close to Michigan International Speedway, it’s hard to deny that racing is a part of the local culture. In addition to the state’s premier NASCAR venue, Jackson hosts stock car, modified and late model races at Springport Motor Speedway. Try your hand at the sport in a go-kart or sprint car on Jackson Speedway’s paved and dirt tracks. Or, head to Grass Lake for a different kind of adrenaline rush: the Michigan Hydroplane Boat Racing Nationals, held here annually for more than 30 years.
