Quote from the site so everyone knows what is going on. I will update this post as more info comes in. This is going to be a huge event and if open to everybody.

What exactly is the Grand-Am Experience for Mazda Owners?

The Grand-Am Experience for Mazda Owners is a mutual effort between the Road Racing entity “Grand-Am” (owned by NASCAR) and a bunch of car people who love their Mazdas and love racing. It is a personal experience between you, racing and the people who race Mazdas.

The idea started in January of 2009 as a way to share a “behind the scenes look” to several Mazda owners and race fans attending the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Two dozen Mazda owners experienced everything a Grand-Am racing event has to offer along with a “special VIP treatment” courtesy of Grand-Am. From this event the idea was born to extend this unique experience to many Mazda owners all over the country.

Own a Miata? Come and check out the fast MX5 race cars. Enjoy the sound of the famous rotary engine? Attend an event and you can see these Mazda rockets up close and personal. Be careful---someone from the race team may ask you if you want to sit in the car or have your picture taken with the team. “Making it personal” is what Grand-Am is all about. Bring the family and enjoy professional road racing at it’s finest.

What has resulted in a short amount of time is a no additional cost offering that allows us Mazda fans a glimpse of what actually occurs during a professional racing event.

You can expect:

-A dedicated car corral to park with your fellow Mazda owners

-Guided tours to meet the drivers, teams and Grand-Am Officials

-Sit in your favorite Mazda race cars and have your picture taken

-Listen to brief technical presentations from Grand-Am officials and official G-Am licensed sponsors

-Autograph signing

-Interact with various race team crew. Ask questions, learn about the race cars.

-At select tracks you’ll be able to drive your Mazda street car on the actual racing surface.

-Watch the most exciting racing action in North America!

-Mazda driver meet and greets

-Walk on the race track

-Be a part of the “Adopt a Fan” where race teams adopt fans and ask them to be a part of their team

-Win prizes and gifts, t-shirts and much, much more

What does it cost? The price of a normal admission ticket.
