Camping Still Available
One of the traits that makes Michigan International Speedway so special to race fans is the vacation experience of camping in the beautiful outdoors.
MIS offers nearly 9,000 campsites in nine Walt Michal’s RV Superstore-sponsored campgrounds on speedway property, which gives fans plenty of opportunity to bring their family or friends to MIS for a race weekend vacation that is full of fun and excitement. Michigan International Speedway is the largest registered camping area in the state of Michigan.
“We love camping in the Graves Farm Campground at MIS,” MIS ticket holder Dan Ruehl of Brighton, Mich., said. “Camping makes the race weekend really enjoyable for us. MIS does a great job of taking care of its fans. We are impressed with the speedway and the wonderful things they do for campers. It’s a great way to enjoy a NASCAR weekend.”
New to MIS in 2008 are 300 campsites that have been added to the Walt Michal’s RV Superstore Graves Farm Campground. Each new campsite has electrical hookups. A permanent restroom and shower building has also been added for guests’ convenience.
Camping at MIS provides a vacation getaway for fans that enjoy the exciting racing action of NASCAR. Every year, motorhomes, tents and pop-up campers ascend on MIS with the idea of sitting around a campfire, cooking out with family and friends and enjoying the scenic views of the historic, two-mile track right in their backyard. The camping experience at MIS is a fun and affordable way to see some of the greatest racing anywhere in the country.
“Camping at Michigan International Speedway is the perfect way to enjoy all the thrills of NASCAR racing in a national park-like setting,” speedway President Roger Curtis said. “In my years in racing, I have never seen the excitement and camaraderie that is generated in our campgrounds by the race fans like it is at MIS. It really makes MIS unique to all the other racetracks in the country.”
MIS hosts a campsite decoration contest every year. Fans decorate their sites with a specific theme selected by the speedway. June’s LifeLock 400 weekend theme is “Under the Big Top” followed by the “Silver Screen” for the August 3M Performance 400 weekend.
Campsites are selling quickly and range from $130 to $2,100 per site. Sites can be purchased for one night to seven nights, depending on the campground you stay in. For more information or to order a campsite at MIS, call 800-354-1010.

The speedway is hosting the ARCA RE/MAX Series on June 13, the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Cool City Customs 200 on June 14, the NASCAR Nationwide Series CARFAX 250 on August 16 and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series LifeLock 400 on June 15 and 3M Performance 400 on August 17.
