Long Beach to be part of Lemans series

The future of sports car racing in North America "became apparent earlier this year when its two premiere series — the American Le Mans Series and the Grand-Am Series — announced their merger for the 2014 season." What is not as clear is "whether Long Beach will be part of that future."

ALMS President & CEO Scott Atherton when asked if United SportsCar Racing would return for the '14 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach said, "We certainly hope so. … It's a very important market for us." He added that the '14 schedule — as well as TV details and title sponsorship — should be "finalized by June or July, and will include between 10 and 12 events." Pasadena Star-News
