WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — With the return of the 28th Street Metro Cruise, News 8’s Rick Albin took off his political hat and put on a helmet to experience part of a track day for drivers wanting a bit more speed.

“We started doing a car show about 20 years ago. And when the Metro Cruise came out, we backed our date up to coincide with them,” explained Matt Berger of Berger Chevrolet, which sponsored the event at US-131 Motorsports Park in Martin.
