    <br />
    There are many more things to do and see in the Mitty infield all weekend, with something for everyone.<br />
    <br />

    <br />
    Make sure to stay for the final party of the weekend, our Saturday Night <em>Classic Motorsports</em> Mitty FanFest, presented by <a href="http://www.ebay.com/motors">eBay Motors</a>, and open to all attendees.
