BROOKLYN, Mich. (March 31, 2008) — Help wanted: Michigan International Speedway is looking for a few good race fans to volunteer for its new Fan Advisory Board with the primary goal being to support and fulfill the speedway’s vision to create lasting memories for every person, every time.

If MIS race fans are interested in volunteering for the board, visit MISpeedway.com and fill out the application.

Starting in early May, MIS will be forming a Fan Advisory Board. Race fans will have the opportunity to provide important input into various MIS initiatives. Each fan advisory board member will provide feedback and suggestions on the current state and direction of MIS and the auto racing industry while playing a role in the decision-making processes that affect speedway guests. Fan input plays an important role at MIS and helps drive the integral part of the business.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for a select group of fans to serve on our Fan Advisory Board and express their feedback and suggestions on the direction of MIS and its services and programs,” MIS President Roger Curtis said. “These fans will play an important role in the decision-making process, which will indirectly affect all of our guests. We are looking for positive fans that will provide constructive and meaningful input and help with our goals as a racetrack.”

Applications for the Fan Advisory Board are available at MISpeedway.com and will be accepted until April 21. All applications must be postmarked by that date to be considered.

MIS has always prided itself on listening and understanding its race fans. In the past year, input from MIS fans has helped with various projects at the track, including the speedway’s new logo, way-finding signage and improved turn 1 seating. Additionally, the speedway’s tagline “It’s Your Speed!” was created with the fan in mind. Even Curtis, who has been president of the track for nearly two years, was able to spend time with fans riding by riding on trams, sitting in the grandstands and chatting with them in the AAA Motorsports Fan Plaza during the 2007 season.

“I enjoy being able to spend time with our fans and listen to what they have to say. Being a part of their experience is very important to me,” Curtis said. “This new Fan Advisory Board is just another way that we are dedicated to them. Their input plays an important role in our success.”

Michigan International Speedway tickets can fit anyone’s budget. The speedway is hosting the ARCA RE/MAX Series on June 13, the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Cool City Customs 200 on June 14, the NASCAR Nationwide Series CARFAX 250 on August 16 and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series LifeLock 400 on June 15 and 3M Performance 400 on August 17. Tickets are available for all events, including qualifying days.
