Michigan gets 2 Sprint Cup races in 2012

BROOKLYN, Mich. -- Michigan International Speedway is set to host two NASCAR Sprint Cup races again in 2012.

Track president Roger Curtis says he's signed sanctioning agreements. The first race is scheduled for June 17 and the second for Aug. 19. MIS has hosted at least two NASCAR races every year since 1969 with the lone exception in 1973.

Following Sunday's race, the two-mile super-speedway will be completely resurfaced for the first time since 1995 at a cost of $7 million. Curtis says the track has had $60 million in improvements over the last five years.
