– CARFAX 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (8/15): Watch as the season culminates with this, the main and final event of the weekend.

Dick Raines, president of Carfax says of the event, “We can’t wait to drop the green flag on the Show Me the CARFAX Race Weekend…The staff at Michigan is second-to-none and the fans bring an energy and excitement to this venue that makes it the perfect setting for these races.” In short, this is a perfect opportunity for race fans to come out and enjoy an exciting and history-making weekend of NASCAR racing with family and friends at one of motorsports’ premier facilities.

For those of you planning to come out to the event and in need of a place to spend a few nights in the area, the Lamp Post Inn, an Ann Arbor hotel, proves an ideal option. Along with prices being extremely reasonable and accommodations being everything you could hope for, it is also situated in a prime location where you can take advantage of its close proximity to the MIS track (less than 30 miles away!) but also, at the end of the day, spend your time in the heart of Ann Arbor, enjoying the town’s evening ambience and pleasant surroundings.
