IMSA Road America entry list features 31 cars across four divisions
There are 31 cars on the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship entry list at Road America for the IMSA SportsCar Weekend.
The overall field for the Aug. 2 race (noon ET, NBC) in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, has increased by two cars from the July 18 race at Sebring International Raceway.
There are three additional entries in the GT Daytona class: The No. 23 Heart of Racing Aston Martin Vantage GT3 of Roman De Angelis and Ian James; the No. 57 Heinricher Racing w/MSR Curb-Agajanian Acura NSX GT3 of Alvaro Parente and Misha Goikhberg; and the No. 86 Meyer Shank Racing w/Curb-Agajanian Acura NSX GT3 of Mario Farnbacher and Matt McMurry.
The LMP2 class will have four cars (one fewer than Sebring) after the No. 8 entry of John Farano and Ryan Dalziel withdrew from the original entry list.
There are eight cars in the DPi class; six in GTLM and 13 in GTD. Jonathan Bomarito and Harry Tincknell in the No. 55 Mazda are the defending overall winners on the 14-turn, 4.048-mile road course.
This will be the last race for DragonSpeed’s No. 81 ORECA LMP2 of Henrik Hedman and Ben Hanley until the Twelve Hours of Sebring season finale Nov. 12. The team announced Wednesday that it’s reducing its IMSA schedule because it will add a second entry for the rescheduled 24 Hours of Le Mans on Sept. 19-20.
The Aug. 2 event at Road America will mark the third race for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship since a five-month layoff because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The race will begin at 12:05 p.m. ET with coverage on NBC, the NBC Sports App and NBCSports.com. TrackPass on NBC Sports Gold Coverage will have live flag-to-flag coverage starting at noon ET.
Fans will be allowed to attend Road America for the race weekend, though the garage will be restricted to essential team personnel.
