“Drive Toward a Cure Day“
NCM Motorsports Park
April 12, 2019
April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month
The month of April is Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month, and we’re seeking friends nationwide to help us spread awareness and raise much needed funds to Drive Toward a Cure for Parkinson’s Disease. Funds raised support PD research and patient care.
A Full Day of Touring Laps
Our track season starts on Friday, April 12, 2019 with NCM Motorsports Park’s “Drive Toward a Cure Day”!
All marques are welcome, convertibles are welcome, and there is no helmet requirement. Participants drive their own car in a lead-follow format for over 4 laps at a time on the 3.2-mile road course above highway speeds. The pace of lead cars will be matched to the cars and drivers in the group to ensure that the driving is spirited and the day is exciting while maintaining a safe environment that allows for passengers! We accommodate a group maximum of 5 cars per touring group.
Reservations are highly recommended. Very limited walk-in spaces will be available.
The cost is $125 per entry, which includes:
- A $50 tax-deductible* donation supporting Parkinson’s Disease research and patient care.
- Unlimited lapping. Passengers are welcome.
- Drive Toward a Cure pin and window sticker.
Lunch and Learn with Sean Kiernan – Owner of the Genuine 1968 “BULLITT” Mustang
In October 2018, Drive Toward a Cure marked the 50th anniversary of the iconic thriller film “BULLITT” and the car that set the bar for all movie car chases that followed, with the “BULLITT 50 Chronograph“. Together with Sean Kiernan, current custodian of the famed Mustang, we continue to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s Disease research and patient care, and honor the memory of Robert E. Kiernan Jr., owner of “Bullitt” since 1974 and who was challenged by Parkinson’s for 14 years until his passing in 2014.
Sean will be joining us on April 12 at NCM Motorsports Park for a “lunch and learn” session, where he’ll share tales of the secret life of “Bullit” and the cultural treasure it has become. Meet Sean, hear some tales, and celebrate the significance of what he and his family have secretly been preserving for years.
