For those of you who dream of attending the Indy 500 but aren’t inclined to travel, I’ve got great news. The Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix is a weekend long auto racing event set to take place in the Motor City at the end of May.
The Grand Prix will be held on Friday, May 31 through Sunday, June 2 at Belle Isle Park’s Raceway.

The weekend will feature three events in its lineup: cars of the IZOD IndyCar Series, the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series and the Pirelli World Challenge Championship Series. Enter and you could win four tickets to the Chevrolet GRAND-AM 200 presented by Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers!

On Saturday, June 1, the Chevrolet Indy Dual Race #1 kicks off, as well as the Pirelli World Challenge Series qualifying and Race #1. Sunday, June 2 is the final day of the Grand Prix and features the second races.
It’s not just an event solely for car aficionados either, as there will be plenty of live entertainment throughout the weekend, courtesy of MotorCity Casino Hotel’s Entertainment Stage. Poison frontman Bret Michaels will perform on Saturday, June 1 at 6 p.m., and on Sunday, June 2, you can catch pop-punk band Plain White T’s at 2 p.m. There will be plenty of other musical performances throughout the weekend, so be sure to check the Grand Prix’s official website for updates.
