Checkered Flag To Drop For MIS Runners

(WLNS) – It’s not unusual for lap times to top 200 miles per hour at Michigan International Speedway. On May 8 lap times will be a lot slower when hundreds of runners take to the track for the first-ever Speedway Stomp 5K run.

The race is part of the annual Michigan Wine and Beer Fest. The 3.1 mile route will take runners on sections of the MIS oval and through parts of the racetrack grounds. While it won’t be likely that pit crews will be needed for quick shoe changes and refueling, runners will be able to top off their tanks at the Wine and Beer Fest Saturday night. Entry fees for the 5K include tickets to the Michigan Wine and Beer Fest, along with a packet of race goodies.

Entry fee is $45 and the green flag for the Speedway Stop drops at 7pm Friday. You can enter online and see a course map by clicking
