Grand-Am races Road America in 2011!

Hey all!

I just got an email from Grand-Am.com a couple hours ago announcing that Grand-Am will be joining the Nationwide Series at Road America in 2011!

Both Grand-Am series will take part on the weekend of June 23-26. Stevenson Motorsports runs two Camaros in each series, including the legendary Sunoco Camaros in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. The Sunoco Camaros take on strong Mustang efforts from Roush and others, plus a Challenger from TPN/Blackforest Racing and a bunch of BMW M3s and Porsches. From all accounts, Stevenson Motorsports is one of the friendliest pro racing teams in the country, and #6 Sunoco Camaro driver Matt Bell belongs to the Camaro5 forum!

Don't know how many midwestern racing fans there are around here, but Road America is outstanding. Besides being the closest top-notch road course to my home, it's also one of the very best in North America.

I'm gonna plan on making it there one way or another. There should be space at the circuit for a Camaro Corral, and a strong Camaro5 contingent would be awesome. Road America usually provides a time during intermissions for fans to drive their road cars around the race track a few times, though not quite at race pace.

So, especially for those of you in the Midwest who can't quite make it to Phoenix for Camaro5Fest II, this is a great opportunity for a fun get together at a great event.

Lemme know whatcha think!

Road America is AWESOME!
It would be especially cool to have all our cars on the track.

I'm for it.

I will have to settle for watching the races on tv, however, I am thrilled by the Camaros this season in Grand-Am...

Just wait for 2011!!!...that will be the year of the Camaro!!!...

I just saw this today on grand-am.com. I'm excited to see the race! It's a beautiful track from what I've seen on TV and in Forza 3.

Awesome! Great to see so much interest!

I would LOVE to see a parade of Camaro5 Camaros just rockin that event. As we get closer to the date we'll have to take a head count and try to nail down a spot to rally.



I'll see what I can do about setting up a 'Camaro Corral' where we can all park together and represent.

Rock ON!

I think we should put Donna and her Camaro on a freight train so she can come watch the race with us.

Working with friends to set up a special area.... Jeff B thought it would be cool - maybe he could come over and hang out with us when he isn't racing....

Might just be the midwest event of the year!

Outstanding!!

Well, keep us posted. Sounds like you're all over it! And I think you're right - Camaros galore at Road America cheering on the Camaros on the track? Can't think of anything much better than that!

Big Camaro parade ON the track at some point? Hmmmm?

Hmm, I wonder if we could work with Grand-Am to make that happen.
I already know the Road America staff, so that part wouldn't be a problem.

Between CamaroScotty and OctaneZ28, I'd say the pros are in the house!

How would you two feel about taking the lead together?

This could turn into something really, really cool! Between CamaroScotty already setting something up, and OctaneZ28 knowin all the right people, this could really be an epic Camaro5 event!
