BROOKLYN, Mich. (March 19, 2019) — Kyle Larson, driver of the No. 42 Credit One Bank Chevrolet Camaro ZL 1 for Chip Ganassi Racing has proven he knows his way to victory lane at Michigan International Speedway. In 2019, you will have an opportunity to ask him his secret thanks to a special ticket package for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series FireKeepers Casino 400 on June 9.
Larson won three consecutive races at the Michigan International Speedway starting in August of 2016 and sweeping both races in 2017. A pair of NASCAR Hall of Famers are the only other two drivers to accomplish the feat. David Pearson won three consecutive races at the two-mile oval from 1972-73. Bill Elliott won four straight from 1985-86.
Larson will go for his fourth career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victory at MIS in the FireKeepers Casino 400. Before he straps into his car, Larson will make a pit stop to meet with the fans. You can meet him in an exclusive event on race morning.
Michigan International Speedway and Larson are offering a special ticket package that includes a Q&A session with the driver, a ticket to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series FireKeepers Casino 400 on June 9 and a weekend Pit and Driver Introduction Pass.
“I always look forward to racing at Michigan International Speedway,” Larson said. “The track is definitely special to me since it’s where I got my first win. There’s also a lot of pride on the line when we race here, with Chevrolet and Ford both headquartered in the state. All of us Chevy drivers want to put the Bowtie-brand in victory lane for this race. I’ve had a good bit of success here, and it’s cool to come back and see fans who were here for my three wins.
The package starts at $76 for adults and $38 for children 12 and under. If guests already have their ticket to the FireKeepers Casino 400, fans can purchase an admission to the Q&A session for $40. Fans can purchase the package at www.mispeedway.com/ticketpackages or by calling 888-905-7223.
