Gregg Krupa The Detroit News Published 2:35 p.m. UTC Jun 7, 2018 Brooklyn, Mich. — As he toured the country in the mid-1960s, visiting tracks to research the development of Michigan International Speedway, a realization struck Lawrence LoPatin. Neither a car guy nor a race fan, the real estate developer came to understand raceways should be designed for fans. “It became very clear to him that the race track had to be geared toward the spectator,” said his son, Mark LoPatin, who often accompanied his late father. “He used the designer for Daytona, who was a guy named Charlie Moneypenny, and Charlie designed a track that had 18-degree banking on wide turns,” LoPatin said. “It allowed drivers to go through a turn, three abreast. It made it exciting.” It still does. The big track at Cambridge Junction in the Irish Hills turns 50 years old Oct. 13, after the two annual NASCAR race weekends — the first one starting Friday. … [Read more...] about Michigan International Speedway at 50: Wide, sweeping turns still set the pace

It’s not easy sharing a stage with Phil Johnson, at least if you’re a phone.In “A Jewish Joke,” the actor and playwright manhandles and hollers at and clobbers an old rotary-dial number to within an inch of its charmingly vintage-y life.But if the poor phone gets seriously rung up over the course of the 90-minute solo show, we can still thank that noted theatrical impresario Alexander Graham Bell for making possible Johnson’s furious and funny and at times even awe-inspiring performance in this exceptional Roustabouts Theatre production.Johnson, a Roustabouts co-founder, is known around town for his careening, see-what-sticks comic style, both as an actor and playwright. And true to the play’s title, there’s plenty of humor to “A Jewish Joke,” which he wrote with Marni Freedman.But there’s much more as well, because the piece — as off-the-wall as it can be at times — grapples seriously with such issues as bigotry … [Read more...] about Roustabouts Theatre’s ‘A Jewish Joke’ lands with humor and heft
