Upcoming Drive Toward a Cure Events
The Kentucky Bourbon Trail Getaway includes a full day of Unlimited Touring Laps at the NCM Motorsports Park before heading to The Brown Hotel in Louisville and a local “speakeasy” for great food and libations, and a chance to unwind. Saturday will feature a relaxing day touring several hand-picked Kentucky Bourbon distilleries with three meals included. Finally, on Sunday we explore some great back roads with lunch at the Bavarian Bierhaus in Nashvillle and we go behind the scenes at the Lane Motor Museum!
Signature Road Rallies
The fall colors in the Northeast are second to none! Whether you’re local or coming from parts that don’t experience such a dramatic change in seasons, it’s always a really special experience. And there is hardly a better way to enjoy it than driving your favorite car along the many classic back roads and byways of the Appalachian Mountains. The 2020 Drive Toward a Cure “Northeast Adventure” will continue to put Drive Toward a Cure at the pinnacle of driving events, blending cars and camaraderie for a great cause.
NCM Motorsports Park is once again hosting a FULL DAY of Touring Lapping in support of Parkinson’s Disease research and patient care. ALL makes are welcome; convertibles are welcome; there is no helmet requirement; and passengers are allowed too! Click for full details about the NCM Motorsports Park “Drive Toward a Cure Day”!
