RE: MICHIGAN MILE!!!!!!! Kzoo MI July 4th 5th 6th 2014
Motokure.com is bringing you The Michigan Mile for 2014! It will be held at W.K Kellogg Airport during the annual air show. For those who attend, it was a show like no other. Where else can you see the fastest cars, planes and Balloons all in one spot. As well as having a carnival and other fun family events. This truly is a family event for all to enjoy.

As The Michigan Mile held it's first event in 2013, it went really smooth considering a lot of obstacles we had to over come. We have learned a lot and have BIG plans for 2014. We are really excited to get the ball moving and in doing so, PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS as this is an event you don't want to miss. It's going to be 100 times better.

We are going to keep the amount of cars running the mile around the same. Most cars were able to get about 6-9 runs per day. We may add more sessions but lot's in the works. As for the Car show, it will be a lot bigger as we were VERY limited to how many cars we could have on the airport grounds. That will all change :-)

So in that note, follow us today and make sure you stay up to date with what is going on for The Michigan Mile of 2014!

Thanks again for all those who attended 2013 event and look forward to seeing you next year.
