UPDATE: It appears Ed Carpenter will be runnning some laps in the Spirit of Daytona DP car tomorrow.
If you find yourself in Indianapolis tomorrow and feel the need for speed, the Grand-Am Series will be holding it's first ever test at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. In total 9 cars will be on track consisting of 5 Daytona Prototypes and 4 GT's.
Starting at 10am the teams will test on the 2.534 mile F1 circuit and will conclude at noon for a 1 hour lunch break. Then at 1pm they'll get back on track, but on the 2.621-mile MotoGP circuit and conclude testing at 3pm. The test is open to the public, but with restrictive access. You must enter gate 2 off of 16th street and park in the museum parking lot (blue). The red represent all the places that I believe you can spectate from. I would recommend either down in the twisties off of the T2 oval or to the left near the MotoGP turns during the afternoon.

"It's a dream come true to come back to Indianapolis. This is a magical place, and going back there will give me goose bumps." -Scott Pruett
"I can't wait to drive across those bricks at top speed. We're very honored to participate. As a sports car racer, I never thought that I could get to actually go out and test at Indy." -Sylvain Tremblay
"This is one of those boxes I can't wait to check off. Every team owner and driver would love to get behind the wheel at Indianapolis. This is a big deal for everyone with the series, to be testing at one of racing's hallowed grounds." -Kevin Buckler
