Charity Track and Toy Drive
The 10th Annual MIS Cares Charity Track and Toy Drive returns to Michigan International Speedway on December 1, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. All guests are welcome to spread some holiday cheer to local charities and take a lap around the two-mile oval. Donate a non-perishable food item or a new, unwrapped toy and take a lap around the track in your own vehicle. The event helps the Brooklyn Food Bank, St. Mary's of Good Counsel Food Pantry, Toys for Tots and MIS Cares. Photos with Santa will be available for purchase! Refreshments provided by Americrown and MIS Cares.
Track drive participants should enter the speedway through the tunnel gate off of Brooklyn Highway and follow the signs to the Infield entry point. Guests will be directed to enter the racetrack via the Pit Road Suite building underpass, where they will take a lap at 25 mph around the two-mile oval.
The track laps are limited to passenger vehicles only, no motorcycles. No passing of other vehicles will be allowed at any time. The driver of the vehicle must be 21 years of age, provide a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance. All participants will need to sign a waiver before driving on the track.
