Michigan International Speedway is recognized as one of motor sports premier facilities because of its wide racing surface and high banking. These two factors make three- and four-abreast racing as routine as the checkered flag at the end of a race.

Spectators also enjoy Michigan Speedway for its outstanding view of the entire track from nearly every seat, its cleanliness and such amenities as free parking. Over the 31-year history of the track, it has consistently been upgraded and improved for the enjoyment of race fans and participants. In a state where the automobile is king, Michigan Speedway stands proudly as a member of the local royalty.

Groundbreaking on Michigan Speedway began on Sept. 28, 1967. The prime individual in the venture was Lawrence H. LoPatin, a Detroit-area land developer who was the first president of American Raceways, the track's parent company.

In 1973 the Penske Corporation purchased Michigan Speedway and immediately began an innovative improvement plan which transformed it into one of the finest racing facilities in the country.
