Fans should be sure not to miss out on the IndyCar Fan Zone, where autograph sessions and driver Q&As will make for a full weekend of activities. Additionally, Honda Racing, along with several of its Verizon Indy Car Series drivers, will host an evening of camping-related activities on Saturday, August 1 from 8-10pm for all guests camping at Mid-Ohio during the event weekend.

Activities will feature a community bonfire – with s’mores – along with a tent and motorhome decorating contest for some fun competition off the track. Participants will receive awards for displaying the best-decorated tent site or motor home spot in each of two theme categories: Ohio Sports or Tropical. Grand prize winners will get a chance to experience a Pace Car ride around the track, while runners-up will receive various Honda-branded items.
