8. Catch a NASCAR race at Michigan International Speedway
Located in scenic Brooklyn, Michigan, NASCAR fans flock to the Irish Hills twice a year to see action on the fastest track on the circuit. The wide, sweeping corners make Michigan the fastest track in NASCAR, with speeds upward of 220+ MPH. MIS, as it’s known, hosts the Quicken Loans 400 in mid-June, as well as the Pure Michigan 400 in mid-August. If you’ve never witnessed a NASCAR race, there’s no better place to do so than at MIS. Pack the cooler, and head to the track!
