The three-day event, hosted by the Earl of March at his family's estate, features a 1.16-mile hill-climbing competition for all classes and types of race cars and motorcycles, plus a 2.5-kilometer course for historic-rally cars. The festival runs Friday through Sunday.

Taylor Earnhardt, the 20-year-old daughter of the late seven-time NASCAR Cup champion Dale Earnhardt, will drive the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing chassis that her father drove to his last career win in October 2000.
