Monster Truck Mania will be a spectator event that the whole family can enjoy and bringing the supporting races to the ARCA Series is a huge bonus for race fans everywhere,” added Scott.
The 2012 season is highlighted by the return of two major spectator events that have become staples on NJMP’s annual calendar – the GRAND-AM Road Racing, featuring the Rolex Sports Car Series and the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, on May 11 – 13, as well as the AMA Pro Road Racing, including the SuperBike, SportBike, SuperSport and XR1200 classes, on Sept. 7 – 9.
