Beginning with a track day at Road Atlanta, one of the most renowned and exhilarating tracks in the world, participants from first timers to professional racers were able to push themselves and their cars to the limits. For some, the highlight of the day was the parade lap, which was led by the full BRE lineup and the 300ZX Indy Pace car, all brought by the Nissan Heritage Collection.

As the sun rose on the second day, participants lined up for the all-day festival and car show at Cool Ray field. Home of the Gwinnett Braves, this facility has plenty of room to accommodate all the activities of the day. Thousands of dollars' worth of giveaways, people's choice and judged show cars, and many opportunities for attendees to talk to sponsors and part distributors were just a few of the highlights.

Finishing off the event was an amazing banquet, hosted at the Sonesta Gwinnett hotel, complete with car show awards, live auctions, and everyone got to hear from Nissan's Chief Marketing Manager for the Z and GT-R. Hopes were high of getting hints on the new Z, but the suspense continues!
