Pure Michigan 400 Michigan International Speedway

Sprint Cup Series
Date: Aug 17, 2014
Track: Michigan Int. Speedway
Location: Brooklyn, Michigan

The Pure Michigan 400 is the 2nd NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stock car race held at the Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan. Inaugurated in 1969 as a 600 mile race, it has since been done as a 400 mile race. In 1973 the race was not run when new owner Roger Penske decided to replace it with an Indy Car race.

From 1998 to 2002, the race was known as the Pepsi 400 but had a secondary sponsor attached to the name of the event, most likely to avoid confusion with the Daytona race of the same name (now known as the Coke Zero 400). For 2007, the race was renamed to the 3M Performance 400 when 3M and Post-it transferred their sponsorship from the Citizens Bank 400 to the August race.

Michigan International Speedway is a two-mile (3.22-km) moderate-banked D-shaped superspeedway located off U.S. Highway 12 on more than 1,400 acres (5.7 km2) in Brooklyn, in the scenic Irish Hills area of southeastern Michigan. The track is used primarily for NASCAR events. It is sometimes known as a "sister track" to Texas World Speedway, and was used as the basis of Auto Club Speedway. The track is currently owned by International Speedway Corporation (ISC). Michigan International Speedway is recognized as one of motorsports' premier facilities because of its wide racing surface and high banking (by open-wheel standards; the 18-degree banking is modest by stock car standards).
