The IMSA Racing Weathertech Sportscar Championship hosted at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on September 15 through 17. The weekend series hosts: Lamborghini Super Trofeo, WeatherTech Championship Qualifying, Porsche Carrera Cup and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway 240.
The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship features two styles of cars – Prototype, which showcases the latest automotive technology and are uniquely designed for the racetrack, and GT, which is based on road-going production models. These two styles of cars make up the series’ five classes – Grand Touring Prototype (GTP), Le Mans Prototype 2 (LMP2), Le Mans Prototype 3 (LMP3), GT Daytona Pro (GTD PRO) and GT Daytona (GTD).
We had the opportunity to walk through the paddock and grab some photos. The smell of race fuel and the sounds was truly our happy place.

More About the IMSA Racing TireRack.com Battle on the Bricks…
It’s not quite time to break out “Back Home Again in Indiana” for a sports car racing series with its roots in Florida and Georgia. But this weekend sees a welcome return to the fabled Indianapolis Motor Speedway by the stars and cars of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship after a nine-year absence to contest the TireRack.com Battle on the Bricks. Although future plans call for an endurance race, this year’s sprint race on Sunday is slated to go for two hours, 40 minutes on the Brickyard’s 14-turn, 2.439-mile road course.

Established in 2009, CarShowz.com was originally created under the .us domain name and later converted to a .com. The old days of searching forum posts and going through the stack of event flyers that was placed on your seat at a show was becoming a pain.
The primary goal for the design of the CarShowz.com website was to provide a one-stop-shop for automotive enthusiasts to easily find events and market their local event for free. Over the years the website has evolved into what it is today taking on automotive photography as one of our staples for the website.
