Fans, Vendors Excited For Race Weekend At MIS

Posted: Updated:
BROOKLYN, MI (WLNS) – If you’re a race fan, Brooklyn, Michigan is the place to be this weekend.

Nascar's fastest track will be host to the Nationwide Series and Sprint Cup Series races this weekend

As 6 News Nick Perreault found out, fans aren't the only ones revving with excitement.

Michigan international speedway isn't just an adrenaline rush for the fans, it’s also a thrill for business.

"They love racing, they pack this place, they fill it and they spend a lot of money here,” said Chris Michael, sales representative, Race Electronics.

Chris Michael travels the country with race electronics, giving fans the chance to hear their favorite race teams by selling and renting race radios.

"It's in the thousands, just on this location,” said Chris Michael.

Jon Kauffman's bringing back his business to MIS for a second year.

"We have five inflatables,” said Kauffman.

"Now for Jon Kauffman he says weekends her at MIS aren't about making money, but rather seeing kids in the area have fun like here at the velcro wall.”

"We're just very pleased that we have the opportunity to give back as well.”

And of course this weekend they'll have plenty of merchandise to get your hands on

"We have hats, t-shirts, stickers, hat flags.”

That means big sales for Ray Shough, who has made the trip from Florida the past 34 years.

"We do 37 races a year and I'd say it's in the top 10 of our tracks.”

Top ten and one this group looks forward to every year.

"The Nationwide cars will actually run again in mid-Ohio in August, but instead of this rig going to mid-Ohio in August, we'll come back to Michigan.”

A weekend sure to guarantee plenty of fans, speed and sales.
