Congrats to the youngest-ever Daytona 500 winner, Trevor Bayne, yet another driver who cut his or her teeth at Lime Rock!
You now have the option of a Guaranteed Infield Parking spot on race days – regardless of when you arrive – for a fee of $15...
Lime Rock’s biggest contest in its history, the Monthly Mega-Prize Giveaway, ended December 31 when we randomly drew the name of the final prize winner.
And what was that last grand prize?
A Lifetime Pass to Lime Rock Park.
The only one in existence.
It’s even inheritable!
The lucky winner was David Dyson of West Hartford, Conn.
Each month from March through November, we randomly drew names out of Lime Rock’s electronic “hat” of email addresses, which had come from everybody who had entered the Monthly Mega-Prize Giveaway drawing. Great prizes such as racing schools, BMW driving schools, Yankees and Red Sox tickets, a Lime Rock Drivers Club personal “track day” and weekend getaways were won by Lime Rock fans from coast to coast.
All told, 10 mega-prizes worth more than $20,000 were won.
Lime Rock is especially proud to award Mr. Dyson, a professional musician (dysonmusic.net), the unique Lifetime Pass. David has long been long been a community leader, having led the major fundraiser for Hartford’s Tabor House (a residence for the AIDS-afflicted homeless) for 15 years. In recognition of his volunteerism and community commitment, Bank of America awarded David Dyson its annual Local Hero Award in 2009.
