Sen. Dale Zorn welcomes MIS President Roger Curtis to the Michigan Capitol

LANSING, Mich. Sen. Dale Zorn welcomed Michigan International Speedway President Roger Curtis to the Michigan Capitol on Thursday.

Curtis is a resident of Onsted and was introduced to the Senate during session following a meeting with the Michigan Auto Racing Caucus.

“As the president of Michigan International Speedway, Roger Curtis oversees an organization that has invested millions of dollars in Michigan and generates more than $414 million in economic activity each year in our state,” said Zorn, R-Ida. “In addition to giving us two exciting NASCAR races each year, MIS under Curtis’ leadership is constantly adding festivals and events for our families to enjoy. Roger also serves on his local school board and generously donates his time to several community organizations.”

This year, MIS will host two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races: The FireKeepers Casino 400 in June and the Pure Michigan 400 in August.

MIS has expanded beyond auto racing to become a year-round destination with the addition of automotive research and development programs and non-motorsports events, including a Tough Mudder obstacle course and the Faster Horses three-day-long country music festival.
