Car club members who want to display their prized vehicle and meet fellow automotive enthusiasts can take advantage of one of five Car Corral packages offered by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the inaugural Super Weekend at the Brickyard on July 26-29.
All five packages include tickets, passes to the Car Corral in the IMS infield, IMS merchandise coupons and other perks for the historic event, which features NASCAR Sprint Cup, NASCAR Nationwide and GRAND-AM Road Racing on the same weekend.
Car Club members who purchase any Car Corral package also can drive a lap around the famous IMS oval Monday, July 30 in their passenger cars.
Package prices start at $50 per person and are available by (800) 822-INDY or by visiting IMStix.com/promotions.
Four thrilling races will take place in three days during the Super Weekend, with action on the famed IMS oval and road course during the same event for the first time.
GRAND-AM races for the Rolex Sports Car Series and Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge will take place Friday, July 27 on the 13-turn 2.534-mile Grand Prix road course. The action will shift to the 2.5-mile oval Saturday, July 28 with the inaugural NASCAR Nationwide Series race at IMS, followed by the Crown Royal Presents the “Your Hero’s Name Here” 400 at the Brickyard NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race Sunday, July 29.
Car Corral participants will park in groups separated by car manufacturer or marque. This will create great opportunities for car club members to meet and spend time with like-minded enthusiasts and also enjoy some good-natured ribbing of fans of rival manufacturers.
