BROOKLYN, Mich. -- Qualifying for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway has been moved to Friday, August 17.

Gatorade Pole Day is set for Aug. 17, a switch from previously published Saturday, Aug. 18. In addition to NASCAR Sprint Cup qualifying at 4:10 p.m., the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and Sprint Cup Series will practice that day.

And fans won’t want to miss out.

In June, Marcos Ambrose set a track qualifying record with a blazing speed of 203.241 mph for the Quicken Loans 400. That speed was the 11th fastest pole-winning speed in NASCAR history. In fact, it was the only time a racetrack has had a pole speed of more than 200 mph at a track other than Talladega Superspeedway and Daytona International Speedway and the fastest speed since 1987 when restrictor plates were added to cars.

The previous pole speed record at MIS was 194.232 mph set by Ryan Newman in 2005. After the repave, 40 drivers posted a faster lap than the previous Michigan track qualifying record.

“Fans can now watch Gatorade Pole Day on Friday. It’s a great opportunity for fans to watch teams fine-tune their cars to get every last bit of speed before the big race,” speedway President Roger Curtis said. “In addition, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series drivers will take to the track for the first time since the racing surface was repaved, so we should see a lot of excitement that day at an affordable cost.”

Tickets for Gatorade Pole Day on Friday, August 17 are $10. Kids 12 and under are free.

Gatorade Pole Day tickets and tickets for the VFW 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and Pure Michigan 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series are on sale at http://www.MISpeedway.com or by phone at 800-354-1010.
