Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is offering free exhibit space to local businesses that would like to showcase their services to the 35,000 fans that are expected to pack the race track over three days for the American Le Mans Monterey race, May 9-11.
To qualify for free exhibitor space, the business must be headquartered in Monterey, Santa Cruz or San Benito County, have less than 500 employees and can not be a food or beverage company.
With uniqueness and modernity at the forefront, the new United SportsCar Racing platform was revealed (#TheReveal) today at Sebring International Raceway, resulting from the merger of GRAND-AM Road Racing and the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón.
With the 2013 GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing season set to commence this week at the legendary Daytona International Speedway, there is one pressing question in the premier AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike class: Can anyone stop reigning champ Josh Hayes?
That question is unlikely to be fully answered at the season opener, but a number of potential challengers to the throne will have a prime opportunity to demonstrate that they are up to that difficult task this season on the famed high banks.

For the 61st time in its history, a group of the world’s best sports car manufacturers and teams are gearing up to tackle one of the toughest challenges in all of endurance racing. The Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh from Florida features a 42-car entry with a number of attention-grabbing storylines for the opening round of the 2013 American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón:
It had been a long time since Alex Gurney and Jon Fogarty last won a Rolex Sports Car Series race – Montreal in 2011 to be exact. Saturday, all the stars aligned for the two-time DP champs, who scored a popular home-state victory for GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing in the inaugural GRAND-AM race at Circuit of The Americas.
