The state said filming will take place this spring for a faith-based drama at Berlin Raceway and throughout Grand Rapids.
The Michigan Film & Digital Media Office said "God Bless the Broken Road" is eligible to receive a roughly $2.7-million incentive based on an estimated total production, post production, publicity and advertising budget of more than $7.7 million.
The film, which will be directed by Harold Cronk, is expected to hire 92 Michigan workers.
The state said the movie features car racing and will tell the story of a young woman who loses her husband during combat in Afghanistan and is left alone to raise their young daughter.
An incentive agreement for the film was approved before legislation took effect eliminating the program for film and digital media incentives.
