MIS president looking forward to another big year
DETROIT (AP) - Michigan International Speedway President Roger Curtis says he'll let Brad Keselowski design his own trophy if he wins a Sprint Cup race at the venue.
The Michigan-born Keselowski took the series title last year, but he's never won a Cup race at MIS.
Curtis was in Detroit on Tuesday, where top NASCAR officials took part in a panel discussion on the new Gen-6 race car, which is making its debut this year. The Sprint Cup season begins at Daytona later this month.
MIS will host races in June and August after an eventful 2012. The track was repaved before last season's races, and in June, Dale Earnhardt Jr. won there for his first Cup victory since 2008.
