Harvick, Newman among names to appear at Budweiser Acceleration
Kevin Harvick and Ryan Newman are just two of the drivers headlining Michigan International Speedway’s Budweiser Acceleration Club during the Quicken Loans 400 weekend.
Designed to get a race fan’s engine running, the Budweiser Acceleration Club is an all-inclusive fan hospitality club located in the MIS New Holland Fan Plaza. The club is perfect for fans who want to upgrade their race weekend, but it’s also great for companies looking to entertain clients, prospects or employees.
“We are really excited with our lineup for Budweiser Acceleration this year,” track president Roger Curtis said. “It’s going to be an exciting event and it’s great to reward the fans and get them close to their favorite drivers.”
NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Nelson Piquet Jr. will appear in the club Saturday, June 15. Piquet Jr., driver of the No. 30 Turner Motorsports Chevrolet, will appear around 12:45 p.m., just before the Alliance Truck Parts 250.
