It’s a party! Start the season with MIS at Tilted Kilt

Posted: Updated:

BROOKLYN – Racing is back in 2013 and it is time to celebrate with other NASCAR fans. Michigan International Speedway with Budweiser and Tilted Kilt will host a Daytona 500 watch party on Feb. 24 to start the season.

If you don't have tickets for the Daytona 500, watch it on 55 TVs at Tilted Kilt. The atmosphere will be electric as each fan roots for their driver to start the season.

The track welcomes fans to come to Tilted Kilt at 44175 W Twelve Mile Rd, Suite F139 in Novi, Mich. The restaurant is located on the front side of the shopping complex.

The doors will open at 11 a.m. and the race starts at 1 p.m. You will be able to watch all the prerace shows leading up to the starting of the engines. Then make the place feel like Michigan International Speedway when the green flag drops and Danica Patrick leads the field to the line from the pole position.

The Daytona 500 will be shown on 55 televisions throughout Tilted Kilt allowing you to see all the intense action no matter where you sit. You will not miss any of the action on the track.

What a better way to rev up for the 2013 NASCAR season than with all of your friends watching the Daytona 500 on TV. Make sure you wear your favorite NASCAR apparel and cheer on your favorite driver.

The event will feature Budweiser drink specials, appetizer specials, games, parlor bets, giveaways and more. Fans can even get their picture taken with the NASCAR Sprint Cup Trophy. There will be a 50/50 raffle to benefit MIS cares.

The Gen-6 car makes its debut in 2013 at the Daytona International Speedway. The reviews have been impressive from the drivers and fans alike after the Budweiser Speedweeks. The Sprint Unlimited featured nonstop action and door-to-door racing.

The Daytona 500 is sure to feature high-paced action as the drivers and crews continue to learn more about the limits of the car. The Gen-6 cars look very close to their manufacturers' street car models – Ford Fusion, Chevy SS and Toyota Camry. And driver feedback in winter testing was overwhelmingly positive for exciting, edge-of-your-seat thrills.

Nestled in the lush Irish Hills of Southeastern Michigan, Michigan International Speedway is the Great Escape, a venerable NASCAR national park where fans can get away and enjoy the very best in racing and camaraderie. It's the love of racing and the thrill of a great time for race fans and drivers alike.
