Friday

June 7 2019

8:30 am – 5:00 pm

Test & Tune at TNT Kartways.  If you are registered to race in the Park, the only cost is a $10 insurance pass for anyone in the pit area.  No cost to watch from outside the pit area. 

10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Registration and parking staging at the Hy-Vee. Register, pick up your transponder and be directed to your pit area parking space. Great time to drop into the Hy-Vee for all your weekend food & beverage needs.

Under no circumstance should you park your truck/trailer/tow vehicle without the supervision of the Grand Prix team.  Tow vehicles will need to be disconnected and parked on the far west side of the pit area.  Again, the Grand Prix team will direct you. You will have access to the vehicle but we don’t have room to let it stay connected.  Due to the nature of the circuit, competitors will not be allowed to remove trailers until the conclusion of the races on Sunday.

5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Parking at the 12th street entrance. Enter the park off of 12th street and wait for a QGP team member to lead you to your parking spot (please see above notes on parking).

6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Registration and happy hour at the Quality Inn & Suites, 201 S 3rd St, Quincy, IL 62301.
