Michigan International Speedway continues to create ways for fans to get closer to the drivers. All infield campers are invited to watch the pre-race driver parade lap for the Pure Michigan 400 right from the backstretch.

A first in NASCAR history happened in June for the FireKeepers Casino 400 when the speedway took the driver parade lap through the MISCAMPING.com Infield Campground. The track continues create new ideas to bring the fans even closer to the drivers. In Augusts all the infield guests can stand on the backstretch to cheer on their favorite driver as they drive by.

“In June we worked with NASCAR and the drivers to take the pre-race parade lap right though the infield,” track President Rick Brenner said. “We continue to think of new ways to enhance the fan entertainment. We are excited to invite all the infield guests to stand right on the backstretch just minutes before the green flag for the driver intro lap.”

Fans are invited to exit the infield onto the backstretch at the M-50 and US-12 crossovers at 12:30 p.m. to find the perfect spot. The speedway staff will mark areas on the backstretch where the fans can stand to watch the parade lap. Please note fans cannot bring drinks or food onto the track.

The parade lap will begin at the pre-race stage at the start/finish line on the frontstretch. The trucks will continue around the track and will get close to the fans on the backstretch. The parade lap will continue around turns three and four finishing back at the start/finish line.

Fans can attend the Saturday concert in Turn 3 FREE with a Sunday admission ticket, MISCAMPING.com Infield or MISCAMPING.com APEX wristband. ACM-nominated LOCASH and International Country Stars Thompson Square will perform on August 12. NASCAR’s favorite Tim Dugger will lead off the entertainment.
