August 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.

Consumers Energy 400

If you welcomed summer with the FireKeepers 400, the Consumers Energy 400 is a great way to give it a proper send-off. This Monster Energy NASCAR Cup race was the home of Kyle Larson’s first Cup win in 2016. 

The Series stars always end the season with an exciting finale, featuring many lead changes and exciting finishes. With great camping, affordable adult prices, special kids pricing, free parking and the ability to bring a cooler with your favorite food and beverages, MIS is the perfect way to end your summer race season. Details are available on the MIS event page
