(WLNS) -  It's known as the fastest track in the country and this weekend thousands of people, both from Michigan and across the country are headed down to Michigan International Speedway for this weekend's NASCAR races.

Fast car fans have been waiting for this mega event all year long and this weekend nearly 100,000 fans are expected at the track.

Michigan International Speedway is the largest campground in the state of Michigan with 80 campsites. With most fans staying 5 nights, MIS officials say fans come all the way from Canada and Alaska to enjoy the races.

43 NASCAR drivers will be racing this weekend. Fans may even get the chance to snag a few autographs before and after races.

One of this years newest features is the Hall of Fame plaza. Fans will also be able to visit trailers and learn about the sport and cars first hand.
