State of Michigan Declares August "MIS Month"

Source: Michigan International Speedway

LANSING, Mich. -- Resolutions introduced by Sen. Cameron S. Brown and Rep. Martin Griffin declaring August as "Michigan International Speedway Month" were unanimously approved by the Michigan Senate and House of Representatives this week.

The resolution recognizes MIS as one of the premier speedways in the country and applauds the significant role it plays in the local and state economy.

"With the Firestone Indy 400, the Carfax 250, and the 3M Performance 400 all this month, August is truly Michigan International Speedway Month in Michigan," said Brown, R-Fawn River Township. "Those of us in the 16th Senate District are proud that this first class organization calls our community home."

"MIS has always played an important role in the Michigan economy and we're excited to be able to honor them by declaring this as Michigan International Speedway month," said Griffin, D-Jackson.

The resolutions detail the $400 million annual economic impact of the track, which has seating for 132,000 fans on its 1,400-acre site in the Irish Hills. The two annual NASCAR NEXTEL Cup races hosted by MIS are the biggest single-day sporting events in the state, attracting fans from 13 countries and all 50 states.

The resolutions also recognize the track's extensive charitable work, which totals approximately $500,000 annually and includes the Spirit of America 800, the state's largest single-day blood drive.

"This is a tremendous honor to be recognized by our state leaders in this regard," track President Roger Curtis said. "August is one of our busiest months as we host some of the world's most popular racing. We appreciate everything the state has done for us and we will continue to move forward in our efforts to help grow the economy of Michigan."

Tickets are available for the Firestone Indy 400 on Sunday, August 5, along with all events at MIS during the weekend, including IndyCar Series practice and qualifying on Saturday, August 4, and exhibits by historic Indy cars and Corvettes.

Fans can purchase tickets by logging on to MISpeedway.com, or by calling the MIS Ticket Hotline at 800.354.1010. The MIS ticket hotline is open from 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. seven days a week.
