Michigan International Speedway's race schedule will be highlighted by two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekends in 2008, track President Roger Curtis announced today. Michigan International Speedway will once again host the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in June and August, with the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series appearing with NASCAR's top series in June and the NASCAR Nationwide Series in August. The 2008 slate kicks off with an exciting tripleheader weekend June 13-15, beginning with NASCAR Sprint Cup Series qualifying and an ARCA RE/MAX Series race on Friday, June 13. The NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race will take place on Saturday, June 14, and the MIS opener for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will take place on Father's Day, Sunday, June 15. "We always enjoy kicking off our summer race season in June with the Sprint Cup, Craftsman Truck and ARCA RE/MAX Series," Curtis said. "Our June event has always been a great Father's Day tradition in the Midwest and the tripleheader weekend has added more excitement for our fans." Then, the MIS 2008 summer race season culminates with the NASCAR Nationwide Series CARFAX 250, scheduled for Saturday, August 16 and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series 3M Performance 400 on Sunday, August 17. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series practice and qualifying will take place on Friday, August 15. "As always, our August weekend features great racing by the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series. It's a fun way for fans to end the racing season at MIS," Curtis said.
