EmpireCovers celebrated Labor Day weekend at the Grand Prix of Baltimore. There was plenty to do for all ages at the Grand Prix. The Family Fun Zone was filled with bumper cars, bounce houses and more.  The IZOD IndyCar and Firestone Indy Lights garage allowed fans to see mechanics working on the cars and drivers maneuvering around on scooters.

The most excitement seemed to take place behind the scenes. When I was exiting the garage, I saw Justin Wilson zoom by on a scooter. Soon, more racers drove by and the IndyCars lined up on the street. I was able to smell the burning rubber from the cars that had just practiced on the track.

As I got lost navigating around the Grand Prix, I stumble upon The IndyCar Fan Village.  It ended up being one of my favorite parts of the event. The village was an interactive playground for all race-goers. IZOD IndyCar drivers were signing autographs and Tony Kanann snapped a photo with me. Porches, Chevys and cars from all over the world were on display. As I made my way through the maze of exotic cars, I spotted the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge cars preparing to race.

Exploring the Grand Prix of Baltimore was an adrenaline-charged experience. There really was something for everyone. One minute these cars were in pieces on a lift then racing down the track. If you don’t have a pit crew to take care of your vehicle, let EmpireCovers Protect Your Assets.
