Here's Proving Grounds official website. Hopefully they will have it updated with new info soon.

just saw this thread....


yes MAP PG is a must for anyone is the midwest.
If you want to drive you car, there's a track for you...

even if your car's out of commission, there's tons of nice people there meet and hang out with.

Warning... leave the kids back at the motel after dark cause it's pretty routy in some campsites and drunk peeps walking around is hilarious.

Its at Brainered International Raceway, the fastest drag strip in the world. They have food, beer, hard liqueur. A bar is open the whole time, and at night you camp there on the track with a bunch of people who party like no other. Then wake up and get to racing in the morning.

Last years event was amazing, drifting is really cool to check out since there are some Pro/Am guys that come. The Central Imports Crew went last year, Midwest Exclusive was there, all the Iowa Drift guys where there. Its about a 6 hour drive from Des Moines depending on how much you speed and if constructions sucks (there was a lot of construction last year, sucked ass to drive through but oh well).

One other thing DSport Magazine came and did coverage on the event, here's your chance to be in a magazine!

Unfortunately last year whoever did video didn't do a very good one, so I'll just show you 2011 instead. Oh and one last thing throughout all three days there's FREE NOS Energy drinks handed out everywhere you go and the NOS girls are there as well.

That looks so fun. I may have to get up there for a day or 2 just to spectate and take pictures.
