DETROIT, Mich. – The Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau (DMCVB) and the MotorCities National Heritage Area (MCNHA) announced the 2014 Autopalooza lineup today during a press conference at the Detroit Historical Museum.

Autopalooza is a series of world-class automotive cruises, races and shows in metro Detroit that celebrate southeast Michigan’s automotive heritage all summer long. Autopalooza 2014 kicks off the summer with the highly anticipated Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix, May 30-June 1 at the 2.3-mile Raceway at Belle Isle Park street circuit.

For the second consecutive year, the Grand Prix will host two Verizon IndyCar Series races in one action-packed weekend — the Chevrolet Indy Dual in Detroit presented by Quicken Loans – with one race Saturday and one race Sunday. The Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix will also include the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, the Pirelli World Challenge Series and, new for 2014, the SPEED Energy Super Truck Series.

Autopalooza promotes the region’s rich automotive heritage to auto enthusiasts and visitors alike and has a significant economic impact on metro Detroit. The DMCVB calculated that the annual revenue generated from the Grand Prix, Concours d’Elegance and the Woodward Dream Cruise alone may exceed $110 million.

“There is no place in the world which celebrates its auto culture quite like we do in this region, where the automobile heritage is legendary,” said Shawn Pomaville, managing director, MotorCities National Heritage Area. “Whether it is the beauty of automotive design at our car shows, the power and ingenuity of our races or the classics cruising Woodward, Gratiot, Hines, Fort and Saginaw St., we are proud to offer the very best in auto heritage tourism all summer long.”

Other major Autopalooza events include the Eastpointe Gratiot Cruise, June 14 in Macomb County; Quicken Loans 400 NASCAR Weekend, June 13-15 in Brooklyn; Motor Muster, June 14-15 in Dearborn; EyesOn Design, June 15 in Grosse Pointe Shores; Sloan Museum Auto Fair, June 28-29 in Flint; Cruisin’ Downriver, June 28 in southern Wayne County; RM Auction Vintage Motor Cars, July 26 in Plymouth; Concours d’Elegance of America, July 27 in Plymouth; Clinton Township Gratiot Cruise, Aug. 3 in Macomb County; Back to the Bricks Weekend, Aug. 12-16 in Flint; Woodward Dream Cruise, Aug. 16 in Oakland County; Pure Michigan 400 NASCAR Weekend, Aug. 15-17 in Brooklyn; Cruisin’ Hines, Aug. 24 in Westland; Old Car Festival, Sept. 6-7 in Dearborn; and Orphan Car Show, Sept. 21 in Ypsilanti.
