MIS bans smoking in most areas after law change
Michigan International Speedway says it's banning smoking in most areas in response to a state law change that takes effect May 1.
The racetrack announced Wednesday smoking will be forbidden in its grandstands, mezzanines, concessions, restrooms, suites and chalets. It says smoking will be allowed in open-air areas behind the grandstands, the New Holland Fan Plaza and campgrounds.
The 2-mile oval track seats 119,500 and will host two weekends of NASCAR events this year.
