A NEW & EXPANDED Location for the Ignition Speed Festival

presented by ACI Dynamix

While 2020 was taken over by COVID-19, the team at the Ignition Speed Festival worked closely with Foxwoods Resort Casino to continue to grow the ISF. As the discussions moved ahead, it was determined a new & expanded location would be perfect for the 2021 festival. This new location provides a tremendous opportunity to continue to partner with Foxwoods Resort Casino, the Mashantucket Tribal Nation while introducing the festival to the great City of Norwich.

With support from the city, its officials and the Norwich Chamber of Commerce, the 2021 Ignition Speed Festival presented by ACI Dynamix is proud to expand to two locations including MONZA World Class Karting in the Fox Tower of the beautiful Foxwoods Resort Casino and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation Stonington Road campus in Norwich CT.

Pancreatic Cancer Action Network

Back in 2020, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns, we had a call with the wonderful folks from Pancreatic Cancer Action Network with a plan to join the 2020 edition of the Ignition Speed Festival presented by ACI Dynamix. However, due to circumstances, we had to postpone the event and look forward to 2021. And HERE WE ARE! Moving forward with the 2021 festival and moving forward with our relationship with PANCAN. Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States and our goal is to create awareness and generate support for those families who have been impacted by pancreatic cancer. #FullCharitySend
