Having opened in 1968, Michigan International Speedway is primarily used for NASCAR events, owned by International Speedway Corporation. Based in Brooklyn, Michigan International Speedway is recognized as one of motorsports’ premier facilities because of its wide racing surface and high banking (by open-wheel standards; the 18-degree banking is modest by stock car standards). Michigan is the fastest track in NASCAR due to its wide, sweeping corners, long straightaways, and lack of a restrictor plate requirement.
