Michigan International Speedway is once again hosting the MIS Cares Charity Track and Toy Drive this weekend, and you can have the chance to drive around the 2-mile oval.

Guests who donate a non-perishable food item or new, unwrapped toy will be able to take five laps at highway speeds around the track in their own vehicle.

All food items will be donated to St. Mary’s Good Counsel in Adrian. The toys will be donated to the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots in both Jackson and Lenawee Counties.

“This is a perfect way to lift the spirits of those in need,” Michigan International Speedway President Rick Brenner said in a release. “It also gives our guests the rare opportunity to drive their own vehicle around the track that has been the site of many memorable moments in motorsports. We recognize that these are challenging times, and this event becomes even more paramount than ever before.”

You can enter the speedway through the U.S. Highway 12 entrance and follow the signs to the drop-off spot.

The laps are limited to passenger vehicles only, and no passing of other vehicles will be allowed. The driver must be 21 years old or older, have a driver's license and proof of insurance. They also must sign a waiver.
