The highlight is the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix, which is the No. 1 attended motorsports event in California; the event is broadcast live on FOX television nationally and shown in 191 countries around the world. The pre-grid entertainment is a 20 minute show and in the past the race track has featured Brazilian Samba dancers and other live music/dance shows for the fans.
