Historical Note

Michigan International Speedway was built beginning in September of 1967, and opened on October 13th, 1968, with a USAC Indy car race. NASCAR Grand National first ran here on June 15th, 1969. A 3.5 mile road course which used part of the oval, and also had sections both inside and outside of the oval, was used from May 11th, 1969 to July 1973. A 1.9 mile road course in the oval has been used intermittantly since 1984.

The facility was purchased by Penske Corporation in 1973, and has undergone considerable development since then. The track is currently owned by International Speedway Corporation, which also owns tracks such as Daytona and Watkins Glen.
