GRM Experience at the Rolex 24 Schedule Announced

Looking for details on the 2019 Grassroots Motorsports Experience? You can find them here.

This weekend the Rolex 24 takes over Daytona International Speedway as IMSA kicks of its 2018 season. We will once again welcome all to our big Grassroots Motorsports Experience tent, right on the shores of Lake Lloyd. Look for it just west of the Ferris wheel.

The Rolex 24 weekend is pure sensory overload, so we made a schedule just for you that includes all of the happenings at the Grassroots Motorsports Experience. Note that our dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings on Friday night is open to everyone, whether they have a ticket or not.
