A specially wrapped and equipped new 2016 Nissan Maxima will serve as the official Safety Car at Virginia International Raceway, located near Danville, Virginia, during the Oak Tree Grand Prix this weekend, Aug. 21-23. The redesigned Maxima, Nissan's "4DSC" (4-Door Sports Car), will be on display throughout the competition.

The car will perform the same duties at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, during the Lone Star Le Mans race Sept. 17-19.

As an official partner of IMSA, the sanctioning body for the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, Nissan has fielded multiple cars and powerplants during recent seasons.
