New Start Time for Charity Auction at GoPro Grand Prix Weekend
Race fans can take home a piece of the action on race day, Aug. 24, at the Speedway Children's Charities (SCC) charity auction. With over twenty-five incredible items, including "Ride of a Lifetime" experiences with top INDYCAR drivers, there is sure to be something for everyone.
The action gets under way in the INDYCAR Fan Village at 10:15 a.m. for the auction preview, and the gavel drops at 11 a.m. for the live auction. This year's auction has been pushed back nearly an hour, so fans don't miss the Verizon IndyCar® Series Warm-Up on track.
