Lodging for NASCAR Race Weekend at MIS

NASCAR race fans coming to Michigan International Speedway (MIS) in Brooklyn for the traditional Fathers Day Weekend festivities and the Quicken Loans 400 Sprint Cup Race have an option to camping. The Munro House Bed and Breakfast offers upscale lodging in downtown Jonesville about 30 minutes from the track. A comfortable bed in an air conditioned facility is a welcome option to wrestling with the elements in a flimsy tent.

With a capacity of 72,000 people who typically attend the NASCAR races at MIS, a large number of fans need a place to stay. Unfortunately, there is a shortage of hotel rooms within a reasonable distance of the track. Fans will either commute from home, travel back and forth from a distant city, bring an RV, or pop a tent and camp on or near the MIS property. To many, the camping option is part of the traditional NASCAR experience at MIS. But for those who have been there and done that, comfort is a welcome addition to race weekend in Brooklyn.

Jonesville is located just 24 miles West of Michigan International Speedway on US-12. The Munro House B&B is just one block off of highway 12. With normal traffic, google maps says that it is a 30 minute drive to the track. On race day, a good alternate route or a precise timing decision could change the estimated time of arrival to 30-45 minutes. Perfect planning and a good exit strategy will allow race fans to optimize their experience by spending the least amount of time in their vehicles and the most amount of time at the track.

The Munro House B&B is the most comfortable lodging in Southern Michigan and is a more suitable location for couples who attend the NASCAR races at MIS. Each guest room has a queen size bed, private bath, HD Cable TV, and free wireless internet. A big breakfast is offered every day with an option for breakfast ‘to go’ for the early risers. Normal rates apply on race weekend with a 2 night minimum stay required. The People’s Choice for places to stay with friendly innkeepers who enjoy NASCAR guests.
