Quincy Grand Prix (June 8-10)

Quincy Grand Prix (June 8-10)

The most prestigious street race in history, the Quincy Park Grand Prix, returns in 2018 after a 17 year absence. A race that drew thousands of spectators each year and only the best of the best came away with a coveted 1st place trophy. With a deteriorating racing surface, Gus Traeder was forced to put an end to the race after a historic 30 year run. With a fresh new coat of asphalt from the Quincy Park District, Gus's son Terry has brought the iconic race back! Don't miss your opportunity to drive on the same track as karting legends like Mike Birsell, Kyle Adkins and Scott Pruett.
