MILLVILLE, NJ – June 8, 2012 – New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP), located at 8000 Dividing Creek Road in Millville, NJ, will host The All-American Race Weekend presented by Global Barter Corporation, June 30 – July 1, 2012, featuring ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, five supporting races & much, much more!
“As we kick off July 4th holiday week celebrations, NJMP’s on- and off-track events and activities are sure to please both motorsports enthusiasts and spectators alike,” stated Brad Scott, General Manager, NJMP. “And with most of our events, we offer free admission to kids 12 years of age & younger,” added Scott.
The on-track activities for the weekend will be the ARCA Racing Series, considered by some to be one of the most exciting racing series in the nation, plus the supporting series Trans Am Pro, Formula Atlantic, F2000, F1600 and Trans Am Vintage pitting some seriously powerful internationally constructed sports cars and open wheel cars on NJMP’s Thunderbolt Raceway. Taking place on NJMP’s Lightning Track all weekend, June 29 – July 1, is Sports Car Club of America’s (SCCA) Regional with racing covering the full range of classes from formula style grand prix cars to ground pounding GT’s, from stock and touring racers to sports prototypes— and once again the popular TreadZone Pro IT Series.
Additionally, the Garden State Vintage Stock Car Club will display 20+ vintage stockcars for new and veteran fans alike to photograph, meet the constructors and get autographs from some of the famous drivers of these historic short track racers. The vintage stockers will present two “demonstration” races during the weekend, plus 1961 Daytona 500 winner Marvin Panch, one of NASCAR’s legendary all-time top 50 drivers, will be on hand for autographs and to take the wheel of a vintage stock car during both on-track sessions.
For the weekend’s off-track events, NJMP is pulling out all the stops with Motorcycle Stunt Shows with Tony Carbajal, Fan Walk, Drivers Meet & Greet, Monster Truck Rides, Face Painting, Vendor Partners, Green and Checkered Flag Experiences, Soul Dancers Performances, Food Eating Contest and more.
NJMP’s food and beverage offerings for the weekend will include a Turn-3 Party at the Officers Club on Sunday, July 1 (only)— a great place to watch all of the racing action, complete with BBQ & Live Band starting at 10 a.m. for just $20 per person with cash bar. All weekend long the popular Smokehouse and Concession menu items will be showcased, and The Finish Line Pub at the Clubhouse will host the regular Never-Ending Happy Hour on Friday, Steak Night- featuring live DJ music, on Saturday and All-U-Can-Eat Pasta Dinner on Sunday.
And, a few great promotions are taking place for The All-American Race Weekend:
