Taking place on a temporary, half-mile track constructed by Lehigh Valley Grand Prix exclusively for the event, the SteelStacks Grand Prix brings together a Who’s Who of the Lehigh Valley’s corporate community for a day of action-packed go-kart racing on the Saturday, June 15, of Father’s Day Weekend. The public can also get in on the action by watching the event from the trackside grandstands, as well as taking part in the public racing sessions June 14 and 16. Over the past two years, the event has generated more than $30,000 to support ArtsQuest’s free music and arts education programming for the region.
The SteelStacks Grand Prix is presented by Lehigh Valley Grand Prix and Barry Bartakovits, Jim “The Judge” Stocklas and Anna Anthanasiou, along with media partner Service Electric Cable TV & Communications. Among the businesses already confirmed to take part in the Corporate Racing Challenge are Adams Outdoor Advertising of the Lehigh Valley, Bazella Group, BELFOR, Boyle Construction, Chevy 21, L & L Construction, Levan Associates, Inc. and The Bayou Boys Hospitality Group. Proceeds from the event support ArtsQuest’s free festivals for the region including Musikfest, as well as the nonprofit’s arts education programming at the Banana Factory and SteelStacks, which now reaches more than 6,000 students annually.
