Kyle Busch Go-Kart event May 11

Race against Kyle Busch!


If Michigan International Speedway race fans think they are good enough to race against NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Kyle Busch, now they have their chance.

On Tuesday, May 11, Busch will participate in a Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 Go-Kart Challenge with fans at Craig’s Cruisers – 5730 Clyde Park SW in Wyoming, Mich. The Go-Kart Challenge is open to the public. Busch is visiting Michigan to support the June 11-13 Heluva Good! Sour Creams Dips 400 race weekend at MIS.

Fans will have to earn a spot in the finals through qualifying sessions from 9-11 a.m. on May 11. The top-12 times advance to the finals against Busch at 2 p.m. Qualifying sessions will cost $5 each, Craig’s Cruisers’ regular fee.

A fan question and answer session with Busch will take place following the day’s activities. The winner of the final heat will be presented a trophy and have a photo op with Busch.

“What a great chance for our fans to have the opportunity to race against Kyle Busch!” MIS President Roger Curtis said. “Kyle is one of NASCAR’s top-tier drivers and we appreciate him giving us his time to participate in this event and provide 12 lucky fans that qualify the fastest the once-in-a-lifetime experience to race against him. It will be a fun day.”

MIS is giving away one guaranteed spot in the final race against Busch to a fan who can correctly guess the number of M&M’s in a vase in the ticket office at the track’s administration building. Fans may guess Monday through Friday during normal business hours (8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.) how many M&M’s are in the 20-inch vase. The fan that guesses the closest number of M&M’s will automatically race against the defending NASCAR nationwide Series Champion. The winner will be selected and contacted at 5 p.m. on May 10.

“We thought this was a fun contest to give a fan a chance to take a guess at how many M&M’s are in the vase and give someone the chance to automatically race against Kyle,” Curtis said. “So come on in and visit the ticket office and take a guess!”

Busch will also race against the media and some of the track’s partners that day.

Nestled in the lush Irish Hills of Southeastern Michigan, Michigan International Speedway is the Great Escape, a venerable NASCAR national park where fans can get away and enjoy the very best in racing and camaraderie. It’s the love of racing and the thrill of a great time for race fans and drivers alike.
