Yes, it rained this weekend at Michigan International Raceway. Still, fans saw three great races and had their usual share of fun. Amid dodging a few raindrops, The Lasco Press is out and about capturing pictures of the fun. Smile, you never know when the camera is going to feature you.
What happens when you get that coveted autograph of your favorite driver and Mother Nature adds a signature raindrop? Oh No!
The Infield Party
Saturday night the rain let up around 10 pm and the party was on. Fireworks, bands, bonfires, and brews.
Sunday Fun in the Fan Zone
Music, the Fab-Four tribute band drew in the crowds. Young and old alike. Cars, the MIS 50th Anniversary Display brought back the chariots of past winners. Log rolling, someone’s going to get wet. So what, it rained. Joey Logano paid a visit to the Ford Performance display in the Fan Zone. See what you missed.
