Michigan Speedway Adds 300 Campsites
Camping is an experience like none other during a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend at Michigan International Speedway (MIS) in Brooklyn, Mich. Because of its popularity, MIS has added 300 campsites to its Graves Farm Campground which will feature electric hookups and a national park-like setting just to the south of U.S. 12, according to WILX TV, Lansing, Mich.
Construction of these new sites has already begun with the project expected to be completed before the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend in June. The new sites will go on sale to the general public on Dec. 15.
“We have always had a great demand for camping here at MIS, so adding 300 new sites with electric hookups only made sense,” said Roger Curtis, track president. “I’m personally very excited about the location of these new sites. They are nestled in an area of the Graves Farm Campground that offers many great outdoor features like water, trees and rolling hills. It is a very picturesque spot of our property.”
With nearly 9,000 sites being utilized on MIS property during a NASCAR weekend, camping has become an activity that enhances the race experience. Many fans take the opportunity to spend anywhere from three to seven days to camp with family or friends.
The Graves Farm Campground expansion is just one of many capital improvement projects MIS is working on this winter. Additionally, a new scoreboard, improved turn one seating, a permanent shower/restroom building in the Graves Farm Campground and way-finding signage on the MIS property are just a few more of the projects taking place at the speedway.
