BROOKLYN, MI. – Michigan International Speedway has brought all the amenities of a tailgate to Turn Four. Now, fans can party before, during and after the race, all while overlooking the high-speed action of NASCAR's soon-to-be fastest racetrack.

The new patio includes concession and merchandise stands, as well as a full bar. Plus, there will be umbrella-covered picnic tables for fans to sit and relax during the day.
The Budweiser Party Porch is open all day and practically all night. The Turn Four Patio is for guests of all ages before and during the race. Guests may bring coolers the meet speedway requirements in to enjoy the area.
"We have continued to enhance our fan experience," track President Roger Curtis said. "The new Turn Four Budweiser Party Porch brings the best of a family cookout to the racetrack. We have tried to include all our guests in the design, and to be able to include entertainment is awesome. We are looking forward to making this a must-stop place on everybody's visit to MIS."
After the race, the Budweiser Party Porch is a cool hang-out for the speedway's camping guests 21 and older. The age restrictions will be enforced about one hour after the race. Coolers are not permitted in the area during this time.
