Faster Horses festival at starting gate

(BROOKLYN, MI) --- It's known mostly for country music and camping but the whole idea is summer fun. The Faster Horses Festival takes place at Michigan International Speedway Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

This year's performers include Dierks Bently, the Charlie Daniels Band, Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan and Miranda Lambert. There are many others that will entertain before the concert winds down Sunday evening.

There are several options for tickets (www.fasterhorsesfestival.com). This year, a classic car and truck show will be part of the event on Sunday. There will be rides on site, beach volleyball, a "Made in Michigan" marketplace and of course food and beverages. The Budweiser Clydesdales will make an appearance.

The summer party takes place where NASCAR runs races twice each year in June and August.

Brooklyn, Michigan is located about one hour northwest of Toledo.
