This bi-annual event is expanded to include a road tour that will take you behind the scenes at many places not open to the public!
A kick-off is set for Wednesday, September 22 with a private Corvette Plant tour and visit with Bob Parcell, Plant Manager. Next is an update on the Motorsports Park project and guided Museum tour followed by a catered Meet 'n Greet drivers/ navigators meeting before staging and caravanning to Indianapolis.
Activities along the road tour include Chip Ganassi / Target Racing team garage tour, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Hall of Fame Museum visit, Ray Skillman Car Collection viewing, dinner and visit at Andy Wolf's Car Collection, Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Museum visit, Milford Proving Ground laps, Pratt & Miller lunch and tour, GM's Heritage Collection viewing and more!
