First-of-its-kind NASCAR Fan Drive Truck Unveiled
For the first time ever at any US racetrack, Gateway MSP will be unveiling a first-of-its-kind NASCAR Fan Drive Truck to St. Louis motorsports fans. The NASCAR Fan Drive Truck will give racing fans the opportunity to experience the thrill of NASCAR racing in an actual NASCAR truck, driven on the Gateway MSP NASCAR speedway. No other track offers this type of fan experience. Fans attending the auto show will have the opportunity to register to win a chance to go for the ride of a lifetime around Gateway Motorsports Park with track owner Curtis Francois on NASCAR race day.
Gateway MSP Pace Car
Gateway MSP will be unveiling the new 2015 Gateway MSP Pace Car for the 2015 season. The 2015 Camaro Z28 is one of the fastest American production cars ever built and the fastest Camaro street car on the road with 505 horsepower! You won’t want to miss this beauty! This year’s PACE CAR was modeled after the collector’s classic 1969 Indianapolis 500 Pace Car with replica graphics in the sought after ‘hugger’ orange. This specially-designed car will be loved by fans of both modern technology and classic muscle cars.
This one-of-a-kind Chevrolet Camaro is exclusive to Gateway Motorsports Park and will pace the field for June’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event. The Z-28 will be showcased alongside Gateway Motorsports Park’s specialty built drag racing COPO Camaro, which is one of only 69 ever built and the only one owned by a race track. Gateway Motorsports Park owner Curtis Francois, working with GM Performance Engineers, built the motor in this extremely rare race car.
With the grand opening of the Gateway Kartplex scheduled for April 18, 2015, Gateway MSP is giving fans with a need for speed, an up-close and personal look at the professional racing kart available to the public. The Gateway Kartplex is the only professional karting track in the region.
Karting has long been recognized as the purest form of motorsports. In a kart, the driver is at one with the track. With a wide range of driving opportunities, there is a place in karting for everyone, from weekend warriors to future NASCAR drivers.
