Michigan Track President Roger Curtis Leaving the Speedway

International Speedway Corporation announced Tuesday afternoon that Michigan International Speedway president Roger Curtis will be leaving his position effective immediately. While no specific reason was provided for his departure, ISC said he was pursuing new opportunities.

“We want to thank Roger Curtis for his many years of service with ISC, and the last 10 years, specifically, as the face of Michigan International Speedway,” ISC Chief Operating Office Joie Chitwood said.  “We wish him much future success.”

With no replacement currently named for Curtis, Chitwood will oversee operations at Michigan in the interim.

This past weekend marked Michigan’s second and final race weekend of the season. The Sprint Cup Series returns to the speedway on  June 18th, 2017 for the Firekeepers Casino 400.

So it’s the track president’s fault that this much hyped 2017 package is more of the same old, same old.
Got it.
“Pursuing new opportunities” is corporate-speak for “he got canned”.


Maybe there’s a decision from Brian that he doesn’t quite agree with. Guess who goes!
