From IndyCars to motorcycles, Mansfield offers America’s Best Motorsports experience, and it’s all highlighted at a better-than-ever new www.ExperienceMotorsports.com website.
Designed with the travelers in mind, RACE DEALS ‘10 provides deals and discounts on lodging, dining and races and special offers, events and promotions at both Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and Mansfield Motorsports Park.

During race weekends, participating local restaurants will also honor specials and deals. Race tickets and credentials now serve as much more than a memento.
