Road Racing Classic
featuring the Mohegan Sun Grand Prix & NASCAR Busch North 200

A new tradition begins at Lime Rock Park this Memorial Day weekend.
The longstanding sports car racing event at Lime Rock has a new partner, creating a unique and exciting combination of two marquee events in one action-packed weekend.
The NASCAR Grand National Division, Busch North Series – formerly the featured series for Lime Rock’s fall finale – will stage an 82-lap race on Saturday, May 29. The fender-banging, tire-squealing and paint-swapping boys from the Busch North Series and their 3,300-pound stock cars are just the prelude to an unbelievable three days of racing.
The Mohegan Sun Grand Prix features five sports car series, eight races and a special celebration commemorating the 35th Anniversary of the Formula Ford.
North America’s premier production-based sprint series – the SCCA Pro Racing Speed World Challenge Championships – will anchor a five-race card on Memorial Day, continuing the sports car tradition at Lime Rock that dates back to 1972.
Supporting the Speed GT and Touring Car Championships are Formula BWM USA, which is making its debut at Lime Rock, the Mazdaspeed Miata Cup Presented by Hankook Tires, and the Spec Racer Challenge. Formula BMW USA and the Mazdaspeed Miata Cup will run double features and will augment the NASCAR Busch North Series with races on Saturday.
On Sunday, May 30, the Mazda Extreme Street car show returns to Lime Rock (perfect for germantwat!) with an amazing display of sports compact, tuner and aftermarket cars, and live entertainment and music. Then on Memorial Day, a drifting exhibition will be held during the lunch hour, featuring a team of four to six professional drifters, who will perform a variety of demonstrations on sections of Lime Rock’s road course. In drifting competitions, drivers control a car while it slides from side to side at high speed through a marked course
