Mr. WALBERG asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.)
Mr. WALBERG. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in recognition of Michigan International Speedway, one of the Nation's premier racing facilities, located in my district in the heart of the Irish Hills.
Over the course of its 48-year history, Michigan International Speedway has become a staple of southeastern Michigan and a destination for tourists across the country. Having hosted NASCAR races, music festivals, charity events, and statewide fairs, MIS is a true year- round entertainment venue.
Through its charitable contributions and community efforts, MIS Cares has twice been named the NASCAR Foundation's track of the year.
The economic impact of the speedway on the region is strong, producing over 5,000 jobs and generating more than $414 million in annual total economic activity.
As an innovative and diverse venue, I commend Michigan International Speedway for its many contributions to the community and for continuing to create lasting memories for every person every time.
