Daytona Prototypes (pictured above) and GT cars are showcased in the Grand-Am Rolex Series. The series will feature both classes on Thunderbolt’s course simultaneously. The Rolex Series features some of the top teams in motorsports, including Chip Ganassi Racing Brumos Porsche and Penske Racing.

The 700+ acre sprawling, country-club type raceway opened in 2008 and has hosted the ARCA series along with the Grand-Am Series. This season the track will add the AMA Superbike Series as well.

The $150 million world class Motorsports complex is considered one of the more premier tracks in the country. The track contains an exclusive motorsports country club known as the Drivers Club, unique trackside Villa homes and the Shade Tree Garages which are secure garage suites.

Later this year a world-class driving school will open their head quarters at NJMP. The track broke ground in 2007 and was partially designed by Harvey Siegel and legendary racer, Caroll Shelby.

The facility provides about 180 jobs for the local area and has 60 corporate partnerships for the 2009 season. The positive impact on the travel and leisure industry is a plus for the south Jersey area.  The track is expected to bring in a host of other related businesses in the near and long term future.
