The Fast Track Café will be open for lunch both days and the Rodizio Grill will be open for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights as well as Sunday brunch.
Admission on Friday is free to everyone. Tickets for Saturday and Sunday are priced at only $5/day for adults, with kids 12 and under admitted free of charge. RV parking is available as well.
The Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy USA will return to UMC over the weekend of August 11-13, when it will share the track with the Pirelli World Challenge Championship.
