MIS Cares’ mission is to create a lasting, positive impact on our community through charitable giving and volunteer efforts that cultivate community growth and advances quality of life.

Extreme Bus Makeover
The fastest track in NASCAR has a winner for the Extreme Bus Makeover
Ken Schneider placed the winning bid of $2,025 in the online auction. Schneider's recently purchased bus will be professionally designed, painted and decaled by the staff at MIS. He will have the option of choosing one of two designs created by the MIS Sign Shop.
This marks the fifth year of the Extreme Bus Makeover at MIS. The idea started as a quick decision to do something unique and different for one lucky fan and has blossomed into an annual charitable tradition that will be remembered by winners forever.
Proceeds for the Extreme Bus Makeover will benefit MIS Cares, Michigan International Speedway’s official charity, and the NASCAR Foundation.
