FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - More than 100 cars will race around the track at Baer Field Motorsports Park this weekend.

The "Grocery Getter Classic" is an endurance race, where the race lasts 24 hours.

Organizers said its the longest race in the country, with most endurance races going only 12 hours.

"Had to be unique. It had to be something better than somebody else's event. We wanted something unique," said Baer Field Motorsports Park promoter Dave Muzzillo.

Teams of four drivers will race for 24 hours, with the car completing the most laps wins.

The race goes from noon Saturday until noon Sunday.

Tickets are $10 for the whole weekend.

Gates open at 10 a.m.
