The race will be broadcast live by NBC Sports Network starting at 3 p.m.

Global development of the NSX, slated for launch in 2015, is being led by engineers at Honda R&D Americas Inc. in Raymond.

Production of the next-generation Acura supercar will be produced at the newly established Performance Manufacturing Center just west of Honda’s Marysville Auto Plant.  

The prototype model maintains the styling and proportions of the NSX Concept that debuted at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, while packaging the production vehicle’s mid-mounted V-6 engine mated to Acura’s innovative new three-motor Sport Hybrid Super Handling All Wheel Drive system.
