Thor Industries Inc. announced it is sponsoring the Elkhart Grand Prix, one of the largest kart street racing events in the country, according to a press release. The two-day event will take place Aug. 9-10 at the Elkhart Riverwalk on Waterfall Drive, and will feature competitive racing and family-friendly activities.
This marks the third consecutive year that Thor has been the title sponsor of the event. The company was instrumental in helping USAC Racing return the popular community event back to Elkhart after a 20-year absence.
The 2019 Thor Industries Elkhart Grand Prix includes a series of Go-Kart races, a $5,000 corn-hole tournament, a kids’ zone, family activities, numerous food options, a beer garden, live music and fireworks. In addition, RVs from the Thor family of brands will be on display for the community to explore.
“We’re happy to support our community with this exciting family friendly event,” said Bob Martin, president and CEO of Thor. “We look forward to enjoying the many activities alongside our neighbors, and wish all the talented racers the best of luck.”
“Our partnership with Thor enabled this great race to return to the streets of Elkhart once again,” stated Kevin Miller, president and CEO of USAC Racing. “The United States Auto Club is proud to sanction and restore one of the grandest street racing events in America.”
