MIS tickets on sale now!
In these tough economic times Michigan International Speedway will be offering an affordable way for fans to attend NASCAR Sprint Cup races in 2009 when tickets go on sale to the general public during the season-opening Daytona 500 today.
New in 2009, the Irish Hills track is offering a $40 general admission ticket with children 12 and under free for the Sprint Cup Series LifeLock 400 on June 14 and the NSCS 400 race on August 16. The general admission ticket is good for seating in grandstands 14 and 16 only.
The speedway has also lowered prices in an additional 25 percent of its seating. With reduced concession prices, free parking and the ability to bring your own food and beverage, MIS is offering one of the best values in Motorsports.
“We understand what the fans are going through in this tough economy and we’re doing everything we can to help them get back to MIS in 2009,” track President Roger Curtis said. "We hope fans will take advantage of our new pricing and enjoy great NASCAR Sprint Cup Series racing in the Irish Hills this season."
With NASCAR Sprint Cup Series tickets at MIS officially going on sale to the public on Feb. 15, MIS is also offering race fans the opportunity to take advantage of its “Half Now, Half Later” payment plan. The plan provides financial relief for fans with half of their order due on Feb. 15 and the other half on March 8. The payment plan is only offered for orders that are placed on Sunday, Feb. 15 only.

With an additional $7 million approved for various capital improvement projects for the 2009 season, MIS is continuing to invest in its property to enhance the fans’ race experience. With the additional spending, MIS will have spent nearly $30 million total on improvements for fans since 2006.
Projects scheduled for completion before the 2009 season will include “phase 3” of the improved grandstand seating in Turn 1, continued installation of way-finding signage around the MIS property and a new state-of-the-art sound system. All projects are a direct result of fan feedback and a progressive effort from the speedway to make the race experience better for its fans.
