Race Information

The 57th Annual Grand Prix Race will be held on April 26th, 2014!

Please join us for “the Greatest Spectacle in College Racing.” The main feature starts at 2:30 PM but be sure to get to the track earlier for the Sprint Races and new Trike Race event! There unfortunately is not any parking at the track, so there will be three different places to catch a free shuttle to the race! Pick up and drop off spots are throughout the day (8 AM – 5 PM) in front of Stewart Center, Wiley Hall, and the north end of Ross-Ade parking lot. Don’t miss this great Purdue tradition!
