Racing in the Streets of Jackson
Racing, community events and performances come to Jackson
Only .0121 seconds seperated the winner from second place at last year's IRL race.
The Jackson RaceWeek Festival celebrates the spirit of racing throughout our community that is created by a strong link between the greater Jackson area, Michigan International Speedway and the race fans that we are privledged to host. Experience the thrill of racing in the streets with a go-kart challenge, or soap box derby cars gliding toward the checkered flag. Meet the racing professionals who know what it means to scream around the track at MIS and experience the thrill of victory. Race fans of all ages will find the tradition of racing growing in downtown Jackson. It will get your heart racing!
Racing Events abound throughout the summer with the major NASCAR and Indy Racing League races at the Michigan International Speeday heading the pack. The Michigan 400 is the headliner, featuring the stars of the IRL for 400 miles of heart racing action. Last year's event was won by only .0121 seconds, so be sure not to miss this years! But the racing continues from the track to the streets with events like the Go-Kart Challenge which literally brings race teams to the streets of Jackson to race. From the Snowmobile Spectacular, which presents 120 mph grass snowmobile drag racing, to the NASCAR Craftsman truck race, be sure not to miss a single racing event this summer!
Community Events are for everybody in the family, whether you're from Jackson or not. These events bring people together for everything from a classic car show to an open autograph session with IRL and NASCAR drivers. Entertainment is provided on the Indy Live Stage and you can get involved with the Fan Experience Midway. These events will thrill the young and old alike, and get your heart racing as you experience what the drivers feel. Read about all the community events today.
Getting involved with RaceWeek can mean a lot of different things, but we're always happy to have you on board. There are events like the Rotary Golf Scramble that you can participate in.
