Options for race-goers include reserved parking spaces for tailgating, a family tailgate area, and a Vendor Village featuring fashion and accessories from exclusive boutiques. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Somerset Medical Center, which provides a variety of comprehensive emergency, medical/surgical and rehabilitative services to Central New Jersey residents.
