BGP 2013

A Celebration of Acceleration

The third annual Grand Prix of Baltimore presented by SRT will feature the IZOD IndyCar Series and the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patron. The Grand Prix’s races are held on a 12-turn, two-mile course through downtown Baltimore, adjacent to the famed Inner Harbor.

The 2013 Grand Prix of Baltimore presented by SRT will take place Labor Day weekend, Aug. 30 to Sept. 1, 2013.

Enjoy live entertainment by multi-platinum recording artists LIVE to headline the extensive musical lineup at the 2013 Grand Prix of Baltimore!  The chart-topping band from York, PA, will lead a diverse musical lineup that includes popular local and regional acts that will entertain event-goers throughout Labor Day weekend.

Recognized for smash hits such as Lightning Crashes, Selling the Drama, All Over You, I Alone and The Dolphin’s Cry, Live has performed on some of the nation’s best-known television programs, including “Saturday Night Live” and “MTV Unplugged.” Rolling Stone and MTV both honored the band’s second album – Throwing Copper – as “One of the 25 Greatest Rock Albums of All Time.”

Live – lead guitarist Chad Taylor, bassist Patrick Dahlheimer, drummer Chad Gracey and lead vocalist Chris Shinn – will perform a 90-minute set that will include many of the band’s biggest hits as well as new material. The performance, like all main stage entertainment, is open to all Grand Prix ticketholders at no additional cost.
