Climb into a real Sprint Cup style stock car with a professional driver, sit back and enjoy the ride. Experience first hand what it's like to run qualifying laps at Michigan International Speedway!
Feel the G-force and the rush as your race car dives down into turn one then accelerates out of turn two just inches from the wall, reaching speeds up to 150 mph. Slower traffic up ahead? No problem as your driver puts the pedal to the metal and you blow right by.

What is the track like?
Michigan International Speedway is a two-mile (3.22-km) moderate-banked D-shaped superspeedway located off U.S. Highway 12 on more than 1,400 acres near Brooklyn, in the scenic Irish Hills area of southeastern Michigan. MIS is recognized as one of motorsports' premier facilities because of its wide racing surface and high banking (by open-wheel standards; the 18-degree banking is modest by stock car standards). Michigan is now one of the fastest tracks in NASCAR due to its wide, sweeping corners and long straightaways.
