Henry Ford Pit Party Kicks off Racing Weekend


DETROIT — The fifth annual Get Your Heart Racing joins with NASCAR Sprint Cup Series to kick off a weekend of racing. The festivities span from downtown Detroit on Thursday to the Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway Friday through Sunday.

The pit party kicks off the weekend with live music inside Shed 3 at Eastern Market on Thursday. Ford Racing team members Greg Biffle, Sam Hornish Jr. and the Wood brothers will be in attendance at the pre-party Driver’s Reception.

Guests will also have an opportunity to watch the race while relaxing in the Get Your Heart Racing’s trackside suite – and welcome a visit by a Ford Performance driver Sunday morning for pictures and autographs before the Quicken Loans 400 race. Attendees will also have the opportunity to stroll the VIP areas to see the race crew action.
