Detroit Grand Prix Exhibit at NAIAS

The Detroit Grand Prix wants visitors to the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) to mark their calendars for June 2 - 4, 2017.  That's the date when Indy Car racing returns to Belle Isle for its annual competition in Detroit.  There are several Indy Cars on display at NAIAS to encourage an interest in the upcoming weekend of racing.

While at the Detroit Auto Show you can also get a first hand look at the Verizon Indy Car Series trophies that drivers are racing to win.  How many names inscribed on them can you recognize?

NAIAS attendees who stop by the Detroit Grand Prix can also take a ride in a Verizon Indy Car race simulator.  Think you can win the pole position in this virtual racing simulation?  I was doing really racing to grab the lead spot until hitting a corner too tight causing the car to flip up into the air resulting in a spectacular crash.  That probably would have hurt if it had been for real!

Enjoy yourself at the NAIAS exhibit then make plans to have some fun at this year's Detroit Grand Prix.  In addition to the races there are a lot of other activities taking place on Belle Isle as part of the event that promise to provide a good time. There will be exciting racing themed engagement activities in the Meijer Fan Zone.  The MotorCity Casino Hotel Entertainment Stage will feature live music all weekend.  Fans can get a bite to eat or something to drink in the Coors Light Beer Garden and Food Court, featuring the Taste of Detroit with local vendor trucks and more. Plus the popular Detroit Sports District returns featuring interactive displays from Detroit professional sports teams.

Tickets for the Detroit Grand Prix start at $40 to attend the races on Saturday and Sunday (June 3 & 4) or you can attend on the Friday FREE Day on June 2 to see practice races, tour the course, and participate in activities geared towards race fans at no cost.  To purchase tickets or for more information,  visit
