With GRAND-AM making its inaugural visit to Road Atlanta this weekend, the series got some nice promotion Tuesday night at Turner Field, where driver Dane Cameron took a parade lap around the park in his Daytona Prototype before the seventh inning of the Atlanta Braves-Kansas City Royals game.
“It was really neat and must have made for some awesome photos,” said Cameron, a resident of Metro Atlanta and co-driver of the No. 42 Team Sahlen machine with Wayne Nonnamaker. “It was pretty wild being in front of the gate waiting to go on the field, I’ve never been that close on a Major League Baseball field like that before. Just having the car sitting there waiting to go out was very special, that doesn’t happen every day.”
GRAND-AM’s event on the 2.5-mile road course will also be its last before it merges with the American Le Mans Series to become United SportsCar Racing in 2014. Cameron and Nonnamaker currently sit eighth in the Rolex Sports Car Series standings.
