Held annually at the Michigan International Speedway (MIS) in Brooklyn, Michigan is the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the Pure Michigan 400. The event first took place in 1969 but it was not until 1973 that it became a Champ car event and from there the race continued to grow in popularity as it became known for generating some of the fastest speeds during the competition. The race was initially designed to be a 600 mile event, however once the first race was shortened due to bad weather, the shorter distance remained, and the Michigan race stayed as a 400 distance event.
