The official Nationwide show car is making a pit stop at Groulx Automotive on its way to the Alliance Truck Parts 250 race.
“It’s a big race weekend at Michigan International Speedway,” dealership owner Bobby Groulx said. “It will be a real nice event leading up to that. There’s a huge NASCAR following around us.”
The event is a joint effort between the dealership and its local Nationwide Insurance representative, Ignazio Cuccia.
“We’re going to partner up on this thing and try to make a real nice event out of it,” Groulx said.
The event is free to the public and will feature a NASCAR simulator, giveaways and concessions such as hot dogs.
Radio stations 94.5 WXKR and 106.5 WLQR will broadcast live from the dealership.
Groulx said he plans to test his skills in the NASCAR simulator and expects a large attendance. “Based on what we’ve heard, the turnout for these events has reached more than 500 people,” he said.
The show car will be on display June 17 from noon to 5 p.m. Groulx Automotive is located at 15434 South Dixie Hwy. in Monroe.
