BROOKLYN, Mich. -- Tickets to some of Michigan International Speedway's most exciting 2004 events, including the IRL IndyCar Series, NASCAR Busch Series, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, and IRL Menard's Infiniti Pro Series, along with the popular Friday qualifying days, will go on sale Monday, December 22.

For the third consecutive season, children 12 and under are admitted free to all Friday's, Saturday's, and the Sunday IRL IndyCar Series event. Tickets can be purchased by visiting MIS' official website, www.MISpeedway.com, or by calling the MIS ticket hotline at 1-800-354-1010. Fans can also utilize the popular 3D seating charts on the MIS website and sample the view from their seat and then purchase seats, all with a few clicks of the mouse, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

"Since introducing the free children's ticket in 2002, we've received such a positive response from our guests that it makes it easy for MIS to offer them again," said MIS director of ticketing John Moreland. "The combination of great racing and great value makes these days very popular with our loyal fans, but also with new fans who visit MIS for the first time."

In July 2003, MIS race fans were treated to record-breaking races on Saturday's and IRL Sunday, during a season that included some incredible racing. The most exciting finish undoubtedly involved the IRL IndyCar Series. The race featured the closest finish in MIS history, as Alex Barron nipped Sam Hornish Jr. at the finish line by a mere 0.0121 seconds. In the last six open-wheel races at MIS, the average margin of victory is just 0.3815 seconds.

Also in July, Brendan Gaughan won the fastest NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race in series history by averaging 154.044 mph.

In August, the Cabela's 250 NASCAR Busch Series race was also a day to remember, with Tony Stewart running in his first Busch Series race since 1998, driving the 3 Doors Down paint scheme for car owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. The race also featured 10 other Nextel Cup drivers, including race-winner Kevin Harvick. After the race, fans were treated to a free concert featuring the popular rock band 3 Doors Down.

Tickets are currently on sale for the Inaugural WSA Snocross event February 28 and 29 at MIS. The Inaugural WSA Snocross will mark the first winter racing event in the 35-year history of MIS. Admission is $20 for Saturday, February 28 and $25 for Sunday, February 29. Fans can also purchase a general admission combination ticket for both days for only $40. Pit Passes will be available to purchase at MIS on both race days.

The remaining tickets and camping to both NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series events at Michigan International Speedway, to be held on June 20, 2004 and August 22, 2004, go on sale to the general public at 9:00 AM EST on Monday, February 7. MIS sold out both NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series races once again in 2003, extending the streak of sold out Nextel Cup Series races to 26 straight.
