Hunters Get Big Discounts on Michigan International Speedway Tickets
Michigan –-(Ammoland.com)- Race fans who hunt or fish – or want to try their hand at it – now have an extra incentive to pick up a license, the Department of Natural Resources announced today.
Michigan International Speedway (MIS) is offering 50 percent off Friday and Saturday grandstand tickets for its June race weekend, and $10 off Turn 1 Sunday grandstand tickets for June, for those who show a 2011 Michigan hunting or fishing license.
Guests must first visit the DNR booth at the speedway June 17-19, show their license and get a discount voucher to use at the MIS box office (restrictions apply). Hunting and fishing licenses are available at any Michigan license agent or online at www.mdnr-elicense.com, and will also be available for purchase at the speedway for those who don’t already have one.
“A great deal on a weekend of racing excitement at MIS adds to the many benefits of buying a hunting or fishing license,” said DNR Director Rodney Stokes. “A license gives you the chance to enjoy some of the finest hunting and fishing around, and also supports the conservation efforts that help keep Michigan among the best places to experience the outdoors.”
Director Stokes added that Michigan offers ample opportunity for quality hunting and fishing, with more than 11,000 inland lakes, 36,000 miles of rivers and streams, more freshwater shoreline than any other state and 8 million acres of public hunting land.
“Pick up your license and explore Michigan’s hunting and fishing opportunities to find out why we rank third in the nation in licensed hunters and why Field and Stream recently named us the No. 1 fly-fishing destination in the nation,” he said.
