Madison International Speedway: The Friday Night Tradition The Friday night tradition is back…bigger and better than ever! “We are expecting big things this year. Don’t just take my word for it. You have to come out and experience MIS.”

It won’t just be a night out…live racing is an experience you will never forget,” said promoter Steve Einhaus. Madison International Speedway truly features something for everyone: An outstanding facility with seating for 10,000 and free parking; four divisions of exciting weekly live racing and several special events; A family friendly environment featuring affordable prices, activities for the kids, and first class concessions; and a racing tradition second to none in the Midwest.

Madison International Speedway is located in the beautiful countryside of the Town of Rutland just ten miles south of Madison. This half-mile paved oval, constructed in 1969, was built for speed as Wisconsin’s fastest times ever on a half-mile have been set at MIS. Grandstand seating is available for over 10,000 fans with free parking. Four weekly racing divisions will take to the track: Super Late Models, ASA Late Models, Midwest / Mid Am Trucks, and Area Sportsman.
