GRAND RAPIDS, Mich -- The FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway is coming up on June 9.

Among the new attractions this year is the Pit Road Acceleration Club.

"We moved our acceleration tent, which is kind of kind of a hospitality area for folks that have tickets," MIS president Rick Brenner said.  "Then you have a place where you can get breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack, and we put that right on pit row. It's an 80-by-280 foot tent, it's air-conditioned. The driver's meeting will be inside that tent, so you will get an opportunity to see every driver because they all come to that meeting. There is also Q-and-As with other drivers and entertainment throughout the weekend in there, and a brand new 12-foot by 200-foot deck with some high-end patio looking right over pit row."

The entire interview with Rick will air Sunday night on FOX 17 News at Ten in the Sports Sizzle.
