A track website will feature videos and photos that celebrate the history of the 2-mile (3.2-kilometer) speedway that's located near the southern Michigan community of Brooklyn. A special car and memorabilia display will be on view at the New Holland Fan Plaza.

The track will highlight great drivers and moments on its social media channels and website. And fan photos are being complied for use on a pace car.
