This weekend brings us the last ever race of the American Le Mans Series, the premiere GT and Prototype race circuit in all of North America. It has been a wild and wonderful 16 years, and there is no way we could let it go without remembering it, if only for a minute.
Yesterday's American Le Mans Series race at Virginia International raceway was a good one, but an especially terrifying crash between Eduardo Cisneros and Marco Holzer resulted in this insane footage. Luckily, no one was hurt.
We enjoy the sports car racing and famous battles in Grand Am but tend to prefer the field and races of the American Le Mans Series and never watch enough of either because of unfortunate scheduling, thus it is with pure joy and an extreme erection that we greet the exclusive news from SPEED that the two are merging…
The six hours of racing at Laguna Seca this weekend didn't make for any surprise wins in the prototype classes, but we got some classically close GT competition. Laguna Seca veteran Brad Fox caught the unmitigated grandeur of modern racing cars flooding through the corkscrew.
Corvette beware. Viper is back. BMW beware. Viper is back. Ferrari beware. Viper is back. The 2013 Viper GTS-R will make its factory-backed reincarnation later this year when it battles in the GT class of the American Le Mans Series.
Here's the GT car you'll probably see a million times during 2012, but only if you're a fan of sports car racing. It's the new Porsche 911 GT3 RSR — the Toyota Camry of racecars (quantity-wise) — in American Le Mans Series trim.

The 12 Hours of Sebring is one of the oldest motorsport events in the country, a day-long torture test that takes place on one of the roughest circuits in the world. Amazing glow-in-the-dark eye candy below the jump.
Corvette racing fans, prepare for a full-on Jakegasm! The newly-designed C6.R for the ALMS GT2 class has just been unveiled. Feast your eyes on all that Velocity Yellow below.
This Corvette Le Mans EVO prototype was spied by an eagle-eyed reader of ten-tenths during a visit to Pratt & Miller's Michigan headquarters. It could have been a reality if the 2007 rule changes occurred.
After a two year stint, organizer and team owner Roger Penske announced today the Detroit Grand Prix will be canceled for 2009.
Porsche has said it will no longer be sponsoring an LMP2 team in next year's American Le Mans Series, despite winning the last three LMP2 championships.
In addition to the IRL racing on Belle Isle, we also had the fun and hard-charging swagger of ALMS racing. We has the opportunity to tag along with Corvette Racing, who snagged a swank chalet location right on the corner of turn seven this year, a perfect spot to watch the Jake-emblazoned Corvette C6.R's doing their…
Proving that road technology eventually filters down to race hardware, Porsche will be upgrading the 3.4L V8 present in its ALMS LMP2 class Porsche RS Spyder with direct injection. The technology was developed for the Porsche Cayenne and Porsche 911, and, given the performance advantages, engineers decided to…
Hot on the heels of the 2008 BMW M3 release, those rascally Germans have developed a racing variant to further develop the incredible tech already present in the stock automobile. In 2009 BMW will return to racing with team Rahal Letterman Racing in the American Lemans Series. We'll be bringing more details
