51 Reasons Why
The 100th Anniversary Indy 500 race is being held on May 29th 2016 and you could be there to fulfil a life long dream. We are only taking 12 people on this boutique tour and acceptances have already been received. It will include the 500 itself and all lead up events we can possibly fit in. Reserved seats and accommodation have already been secured. As further dirt track races become available we will add these to the tour. We expect them to be the POWRi Illinois midget week and USAC's time honoured Indiana Midget week. Plus non wings sprints galore, the Hoosier Hundred and the incredible Little 500 at Anderson. + maybe even a couple of WoO races!!

Not to mention the spectacular 2015 Chili Bowl trip.
We will be offering the Daytona Speedweek tour in Feb 2016 and the flagship 2016 Month of Money tour. We want to do all of them, but it will depend on confirmed numbers. A minimum of 10 tour members with deposits paid triggers all tours as goers when we reach that number.

Yes the Month of Money Tour is always available to book at any time. We invite you to review every last highly organised and detailed itinerary of both tours. There are usually two to choose from ...
The first is the absolute ultimate for dedicated race fans, particularly if you like sprintcars.

In addition we will see USAC's non winged sprintcars in Indiana Sprintweek, the enormous Oskaloosa party races and a whole lot more. Three nights and four days in the best city in the world - New York, two nights in Chicago, retrace the old Route 66 through Illinois, two nights in St Louis and maybe even a day at the fabulous Iowa State Fair. Plus non winged sprints at Gas City, Haubstadt, Bloomington, Putnamville and Kokomo in Indiana.
There are up to 25 included nights of racing in the Full Tour timeframe across 35 days in America watching the best in the world.
We have put together what we think is a doozy of a schedule. The ultimate itinerary for you. We believe the pricing is as attractive as we can make it, considering the host of inclusions which are built in as part of the deal. Plus the NASCAR Trucks on dirt at Eldora where possible.

No self driving of rental cars is required.
Check out the links and pages throughout this website for all the reasons why you should consider touring with us, then review the inclusions, and of course study the itinerary of all the places and tracks you have only dreamed about seeing racing at one day.
Naturally the final schedules will be determined by announcements from tracks and sanctioning bodies in the USA as to exact dates for their events, but we're confident we have got it 99% covered.
